How can I restrict a list of issues that is returned for issue-picker?


I'm developing a custom dialog and I need add an issue picker on it. The list of issues that we can select should contain issues of specified type from a one project. Is there a some way to configure the issue picker to achieve this?

I've found on a default page the following code, is there some attributes that I can use in my case?

<select class="aui-field-issuepicker hidden" multiple="multiple" name="parentIssueKey" id="jira-issue-keys-hidden"

I've tried this, but with no success. I think, this is because JIRA search issues using History Search instead of JQL Search.

I'm having the same problem.

I have created a custom project which holds my vendor contacts (custom issue type I created for contact information).

Now I have added a custom field with the Issue Picker plugin, and would like to restrict the available issues there to my vendor contacts project only.

Has anyone found a solution for this?

After the research, I found out that it is not possible to use JQL at the corresponding ajax-parameter, because JIRA ignores it. Maybe I'm wrong, but I didn't found any way to reuse JIRA REST endpoins, so I implemented my own one.

Actually, REST Browser help - actual parameter name is currentJQL (HTML attribute is - from linkjiraissue.vm).

The problem is Issue Picker's REST returns two sections - "History Issues", and only after it - "Current Search". If "HI" has more than 8 issues, than "CS" section will be lower, than user's viewport. I didn't find how to disable history search.

"query" param is used to send current user's input, like part of issue key or summary.

Try:"PROJ""resolution = Unresolved"
