Filter by sprint

When I create a Quick Filter in BigGantt, say

assignee=myuser

the resulting rows in the Gantt chart are grouped by sprints (there is an expanding "+" for Backlog, one of Sprint 10, etc.).

Is there any way to add an "only display things from this sprint"? I tried to add

assignee=myuser and sprint = "my sprint name"

but it doesn't seem to change the behavior.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks!

Hi @David Doria

The issue which you encounter is most likely caused by plugin’s inability to fill out / populate sprint related JQL queries.
You see, once you make these queries in the Jira’s JQL Search bar, the environment will ‘hint out’ either the rest of Sprint’s Name or its ID. Our plugin’s Quick Filter box does not give away suggestions like these, therefore it is easy to make a typo or simply ‘confuse’ the plugin with a JQL Filter.


I have discussed it with @Piotrek Romanczyk [SoftwarePlant]and what we’d suggest is to make sure that desired filter works in the Jira Search bar and then copy + paste it into the Quick Filter box itself.
Please be aware that this is a necessity only in case of ‘Sprint Search’. Other JQL searches should work like charm in our Program Configuration Panel.

The other obstacle, in this case, might be the fact that our plugin does not return valid information during the runtime, which prevents the filter to be ‘fully processed’ by Jira while we try to make a query.

I have created, upvoted and subscribed you to an improvement ticket (https://softwareplant.com/jira/browse/PPM-2243) in our Backlog and will try to implement it as soon as possible.

Thanks, that seems to work. I don't suppose there is a "current sprint" concept so I don't have to change the filter every 2 weeks?

Funny that you mention @David Doria because There is a "current sprint" concept in JQL =) it is sprint in openSprints () JQL.

You can also find a good reference of JQL functions here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jiracoreserver075/advanced-searching-functions-reference-935563524....()

@Dastin Kuwałek [SoftwarePlant] is usually helpful with these questions. I'll see if he can provide an answer.
