Is there a way to make a defined set of issues show in the issue list. For example, I could be doing multiple searches and adding a subset to my issue basket. Or just looking at issue details and add a single issue to my basket. Then, be able to filter based on that basket? I don't want to accomplish this by adding a field, linking or subtasks. I just need a temporary "working set" of issues that I can refer people to or make mass updates to. I assume I could make a custom filter and use "key IN(IS-1,IS-2,IS-3)", but that is not really ideal. Any plugins that meet this need?
You've answered your own question - the most simple way to do this is to say "key in (x, y, z)".
If you want something more personalised (i.e. they choose what they want to keep an eye on), then ask the users to "watch" the issues.
I can't think of a more simple way to do it!
I can give 2 specific examples of why that would be really inconvenient.
You'll need to write some code to do that. There's no plugin, and the closest you can get is as you've described in your original question. In fact, I'd even recommend that the code behind your basket stuff ends up doing the same when you come to the query/filter side of it - instead of implementing something new, just tell the JQL "here's a string of issues to use in an 'in' clause". (For the advanced coding, add a JQL function of "in my basket" which returns the string)
