How do I integrate component filtering in my filter query?

(please forgive my very basic knowledge of JIRA)

I already have another condition in my filter query, but I want to add component filtering on top of it.

This is my first part: project = RTD ORDER BY Rank ASC

It works, so far so good. But I want to add about 12 components too.

What would be the correct syntax and way to separate them.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Ariane,

you can combine different conditions with AND or OR, so your JQL would look like:

project = RTD and component = <...> order by rank ASC

or if you want to query more than one component:

project = RTD and component in (component1, component2, ...) order by rank ASC


Hey Thomas, thank you for this quick reply!

The query will not accept "AND" or "and" after "project = RTD ORDER BY Rank ASC". 

It doesnt accept "in" either and suggests ASC. If I use ASC and then (component1, component2,...) it says it cant sort using the component I mentionned.

Am I missing something?


Thanks again,

order must be the last command in your query. 

Try it first without the "order by":

project = RTD and component = ...

Dude omg that woked, thank you so much.

The veil has lifted, i can see clearly again.


You are my hero.
