1 specific issue tracking across mutliple projects

Is there a way to pull data from multiple projects about 1 specific issue type.  Example - say we created an Issue Type of Milestones - would there be a way to get a rollup of the status of all the Milestone Issue types across multiple projects?  How would we display/view this information?  Would it have to be a board on the Dashboard?

Also, can you do a rollup of specific fields in an issue type across multiple projects?  Using the Milestone example above, is there a way to see all of a specific field (ex. Release Date) across all projects with the Issue Type of Milestones?

Thanks for any help.

You can do this using a filter and a little bit of JQL.

Something along the lines of (project = "xyz" OR project = "zyx") AND (type = "Milestones")

You can add as many projects as you like

From there you can use gadgets or boards to display that filter in a more friendly manner 

Or even just "issuetype = Milestones".  You can add the date (and other fields) to be seen on the issue navigator and you've got everything in a single filter then.
