How to create a filter with in argument another filtre from an external data source?


I have 2 instances of JIRA and would like to create a request/filter with data from the two instances.

I try to create a filter with in argument another filter from the second instance.

ex: from Instance A

"assignee = currentuser() or filter = xxxx ORDER BY updated ASC"

and xxxx is a filter from the intance B.


Is there any function/configuration for that?

No, you'd need a lot of coding to do that.

  1. You need to be able to tell A that "JQL function X means go read another JIRA"
  2. You need some code to go off and do the reading when the function is run
  3. You will need to take the response from B and somehow inject it into the filter
  4. Filters in JIRA return a list of issues.  This is then read by a reporting function (a report, the issue navigator, a board, a project header, a gadget etc), and those functions pull out data for display.  You'll need to rewrite all of those functions so that they can go to B and fetch the issue data when needed.  Otherwise, they're not going to report anything.
