quite a while ago, someone helped me setup a dashboard/query to display my tickets as I would like to see them displayed. Now I was thinking about modifying the query behind my dashboard. I clicked on an icon to edit my dashboard, but that screen did not have anything to modify the query behind the dashboard. How can I modify the query behind my dashboard ?
you're almost there. In simple words the relation in Jira is a dashboard which contains gadgets and those are powered by JQL queries.
JQL queries, when saved, are often referred to as filters - so those filters are the 'fuel' to powerful dashboards, using gadgets.
You can see them regularly when inspecting one of the gadgets on your dashboards or when creating a new one (then you need to provide a filter or initially to form a JQL query).
Please see further documentation on this here:
Some inspiration what is possible then was published in a blog post which I found always interesting and useful:
Hi @barry kimelman ,
you actually need to modify the query used in the gadget that's on your dashboard, not the dashboard directly.
You can have a look at the documentation on how to edit a gadget : https://confluence.atlassian.com/jiracoreserver/adding-and-customizing-gadgets-939938014.html#:~:text=If%20you%20don't%20already,in%20Gadgets%20for%20Jira%20applications.
