Export, change and re-import filters

Hi guys,

One of our developers mentioned that he has to change a lot of filters. He had the idea to export the filters, change them by a batch or so and then to re-import them. Can you imagine if this could be done and how?

Cheers, Evelin

At the moment, it is not possible to export/import filters by GUI actions. Atlassian raised a feature for this - check JRA-30382 if you are interested.

in your DB you have a table called searchrequest. In the reqcontent column you find the JQL that's definig each filter found in that table.

Since I don't know if altering the contents directly in your database would have any undesired impact I'm not suggesting to go that way. Just saying that it might be done that way :-) Atlassian generally advises to not alter the DB.

Hi Christian, thanks for your answer. Yes, alter the database would be a possibility but we don't feel very comfortable with that because it's not supported by Atlassian.
