Additive Quick Filters

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Configuring Quick Filters

Currently multiple quick filters impose and AND condition across multiple constraints.  Is it possible to change to an OR operator so that you can select multiple different filters that would all justify inclusion.

No, I'm afraid there's no way to do that.  It would be nice (although the UI designer I've spoken to about it says it's hard to sensibly show the mode on-screen to avoid "why isn't an and/or" questions from end users)

No, but you can use our plugin The Agile Board FIlter to handle this scenario.

Quick Filters are intended for simple cases. For more complex searches, including OR, use the regular JQL Basic or Advanced search for issues


Sometimes you need additive quick filters, so this intention though understandable can always be challenged I think.

Just curious about the comment for quick filters being "intended for simple cases" as some of our users are seeing some weird scenarios. What goes beyond simple and causes quick filters to break?


For example, we have quick filter "A" defined as "Custom Select Field" != "XYZ" and quick filter "B" defined as being "component not in (some.component).


When using quick filter "A" or "B" by themselves, they are fine. However, when using them additively / together, the query doesn't work. 


Thanks in advance for your input.


I agree with Rohan. A simple filter to show label:red and label:yellow is a great example of something that as a PM I would like very much. Also due:30 and due:overdue would be another one. Guy
