Any way to use affectedversion instead of fixversion when browsing a Version's Issues?

In the Projects tab, for a given project, you have the ability to browse the issues for a selected version. The filter that is constructed normally uses the field "fixVersion", eg "fixVersion = Lewis AND project = HST". Is there any way to use "affectedVersion" instead? When one of our project teams looks at version, they want to know what is broken, not what is fixed. They came from Redmine, maybe that's a habit it enables? Yes I know they can create their own filter, I was just wondering if there was a way it could be configured so a new user gets this by default.

Hi Bill,

The project issue tab shows all the versions irrespective of whether they are fixed or affected. Please check again.


Yes, but when you click one of those versions, you will then be presented with the Issues screen which you can then select "All issues". Doing that uses a query which is similar to: fixVersion = Lewis AND project = HST

That is where the use would like to see the query as " affectedVersion = Lewis" They don't have any releaed products yet, hence the look at what is broke, not what is fixed.
