Grouping incidents in JIRA Service Desk

I am evaluating Service Desk funcionality, I already have JIRA in my company but I want to know how Jira Service Desk can group a number of incidents with the same type. For example: An error message that appears when a user tries to print a sales report, 15 people have created issues in JIRA, but I want to group them using this structure: System / Module / Error description. This way I can create statistics about what errors (or problems) have more incidents registered in JIRA.

Is there any way to configure that in JIRA Service Desk?

Hi there!

If you have custom fields configured to handle these properties, you could use the Issue Navigator to group issues per value of the custom field and, if you need to have the search result saved, you can create filters.

In this case, I recommend using Advanced Search to run a JQL query like the one below:

System = Windows AND Module = Browser AND Error = "Failure to launch"

Hopefully that will help you achieve what you need.



Hey Pchamoli,

you mean to group your queues in a more graphic way with these structure ?
Like in the screenshot?

If yes this would just be subqueues:
Unassigned -  assignee is empty

↳ Bugs - assignee is empty and issuetype = bug 
If you want to "fake" a structure like this you just have to use the arrow symbol in the queue name.
