How do I search by status category?

When you create a new, custom, status, you assign it to a category.  You also map statuses to categories on the Agile board.

I want to be able to search for tickets by those categories - New, In Progress, Complete.

This would allow me to create a view for an Epic similar to the Sprint Health Gadget.

As it is, I have to be able to group the Custom Status fields into categories as I read the chart, or create multiple charts to have the view for an Epic that I get for a Sprint in the Sprint Health Gadget.

statusCategory = indeterminate  (in progress)

statusCategory = done  (done)


+ new

+ undefined


Hope this helps

You can't do it without some dev work. Maybe easier to just create a scripted field that stores the status category on the issue.

Jobin - thank you very much for the response, do you have a script already for that?

I do not but it should be fairly easy to do if you have Scriptrunner plugin. See Try
