Group Items in Filter Search


I am relatively new to JIRA filters and JQL. I am looking to have collapsable groups dependent on a field (e.g. user name or status). Is there a way to do this? 

Here is an example string I am working with:

project = TEST AND issuetype = bug AND status != Closed ORDER BY Rank

JQL only finds issues.  How they are displayed to you is entirely up to what you display the results in (the order by clause is a convenient flag for a couple of places to pick up a sort order piece of information).

I've seen a few add-ons that give you grouped views, but there's none built in that do a grouped expand/collapse type view

What Nic has said is true: there's no way of using a GROUP BY clause in JQL.

Nevertheless, you have several built-in ways of viewing issues grouped by a specific field through the inclusion of gadgets on a dashboard.

Have a look at these gadgets:

The results shown are clickable so that you can see all issues falling into each of those categories.

That's what I said, the "group by" is handled by the reporting method, not the search.

Exactly. Just wanted to point out some specific built-in ways of grouping issues.

Hi @Jeremiah Landi


you can use project = TEST AND issuetype = bug AND status != Closed JQL and then Go to "Export" --> Charts --> and their you can find lots of charts availabe and you can user Pie Chart and choose the field you want to group by the tickets it can be any select list or multi select also as oer your choice.
