Is there any way to use JQL in the backlog? My specific use case is that I would like to quickly filter between different labels (or components, etc) in the backlog view. I use the backlog view to plan out sprints and versions, and I'd like to quickly search for all tasks with a specific label so I can figure out when to do them.
Screenshot of the search bar I'm referring to:
Right now, the only way to use JQL in the backlog that I've found is to create a quick filter with the JQL that I want, and then I can use it in the backlog. Obviously, this isn't very effective since I can't query anything dynamic on the fly.
In the top menu under „issues“ you can create a filter like this
project=abc and status=yourbacklogstatus
Then save this filer and mark is favorite.
Whenever you are doing your planing call the filter and append the stuff you need on the fly.
I think that‘s the closest you can get. But I like the idea of having a dynamic subfilter for the backlog are even for boards. Maybe it is worth to hand in a feature request. But to be honest as great as Jira is, the development department is a bit slow. Even bugs take years to get fixed. Good look.
