Can I insert a JIRA filter into another JIRA filter simply by stating it's filter ID?

Hi - I have quite a complex JIRA that requires regular maintenance what I don't want to have to copy and "tweak" for other boards and various other uses as this would become a bit of a nightmare when trying to maintain them all. Is there a way to reference the main complex filter within the other "child" filters so that I only need to maintain that one filter and the other filters that reference it automatically pick up those changes?

Hi James,

I am not totally sure I understand what you mean, but you can use the filter search (e.g. the query of filter2 can be

filter = filter1ID AND assignee is EMPTY

Where filter1ID is the id of the main filter.

For more info check the examples in the docs
