I would like to list the ISSUE’s which are in (Resolved) state where the assignee is not same as reporter and save this as a filter.
I understand this is not possible using jira out of box
In addition to John's answer... script runner has an expression JQL function that allows you to compare if values are the same, different, greater than etc.
Here's a couple options:
1. Purchase and install the JQL Tricks Plugin (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.j-tricks.jql-plugin). This plugin has the hasSameValues function which provides the ability to compare two fields. (http://www.j-tricks.com/jqlt-issue-functions.html)
2. Install the script runner plugin (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.onresolve.jira.groovy.groovyrunner). Create a scripted field which will have the value of true if the assignee and reporter match, and false if they don't. Then you can query off of this scripted field. This scripted field doesn't have to be visible on your issue.
those are very great tools and I think they can help me what I am trying to do: I have a few parent tasks - lets say of the issue type "monthly meeting". Now from every "monthlymeeting" there are sub tasks created. What I want to do is to show all sub tasks on all parent tasks of the issue type "monthlymeeting" which are creating during a period of time. The reason why I want to seperate by issue type is that there are more issue types like "dailymeeting" and "semestermeeting", So a query to automatically show only the sub-tasks from a specific meeting with jtricks could look like this:
issue in parent ("issuetype = 'monthlymeeting'") and issue in hasSameValues("issue in parent ("issuetype = 'monthlymeeting'")", "customfieldValue")
The customfieldValue is inherited from the parents issue type, is there a way to compare not only one but two issues?
I hope this makes my usecase understandable. Thanks for your help and advice.
thanks for your answer.
I think the reason why I am struggling here is, that I want to compare a value of the parent issue with a value from the child issue. And potentially in my case I have a lot of different issue types (around 70+) which I need to manage. I would like to use a request which is relative and not absolute (so I just need to have one request and manage this and not 70). The way I would like to set up the comparison is with two fields. The issue type field in the parent issue and a custom field in the child issue. Maybe to be more precise: I want to show those issues with the add-on Issue Matrix. With one relative query I would just need to add one custom field. The other way there would be 70 different custom fields, which I really don't think is a good thing.
Do you have any advice on this?
Thanks in advance.
SQL for JIRA is the natural way to acheieve it as it transforms any JQL into a pure SQL query, then you can operate on the JIRA data by using SQL or JQL together according to your needs.
issue in sql("
select i.key from issues i where i.jql='resolution=unresolved' and i.assignee != i.reporter
Voila, the JQL above is just waht you are looking for
