Bulk change and keep issue list

Often, I have a use case where I need to find a list of issues, transition them to another step, then assign them. Typically, I search for them by the step they are in, then when bulk transitioning them, I lose the issue list. Is there a way to maintain a list of issues across bulk changes, until I'm ready to reload it?

Hi Kevin,

yes, if you expand your query in advance. Lets say you you are in status A and want them transition to status B. If you use following query you will still have your issue list after bulk transitioning them.

status = A or status changed to B by currentuser() after -5m


Thanks, Udo. That worked wonderfully! I'm new to JIRA > 4 (we just upgraded from 3.10.2), so I haven't learned as much JQL as I'd like!
