Hi there,

Jira should be rolled out for a major project. In this major project, 30 teams are working on exactly one product.

It is expected that each of the 30 teams will create their own Jira project.

At the end of a release, the user stories / bugs for this product should be shown. In order to make this possible, product labeling must be carried out either at the Issue-level or at the Jira -project-level.

We want to avoid marking the Issue (Story/Bug), because users have to set thousands of markers/tags.

Is labeling possible at the level of the Jira project? We have not found a way.

Thanks in advance for the support.

Best regards

Hi Wencke,

You can add Jira projects into project categories, and then use JQL to query issues.

Read more about project categories here -

Slightly different UI for Jira Server, but you can do the same.

The JQL is then:

category = "majorproject" and type IN ("Bug", "Story")

Can you also advise if you have any apps, for example, Automation for Jira or Scriptrunner? This will help with some automation if needed, if the above isn't suitable.
