How to find Filter Name from Filter ID ?

When I create a filter it is assigned an ID (as well as the name I used when saving it). I then use this ID is creating additional filters:

filter = 12000 and assignee = jsmith

How do I find out which filter a specific ID actually is? The search filter page only "Searches in the filter's name and description." I want to search on ID.

If the filter is shared to you, then you can view the filter & you will get the name of the filter



Thanks for this, works fine.

I also realised that I could work around this by adding the filter ID in the filter name and then the search functionality would be able to find it.

I tried this and it didnt work

You can search in the database:

select id, filtername from searchrequest where id =<id>;

or enter the id simply in your edit filter url like

Thanks for the replies. I do not have direct access to the database so the "select" query is not usable. The 'edit' link does work if the filter was created by myself but does not work if the filter is someone elses and shared for me to use.

This if working for me:

HashMap<String, Object> hashMap = new HashMap<String, Object>();
hashMap.put("id", projectOrFilterId);
List<GenericValue> result = ofBizDelegator.findByAnd("SearchRequest", hashMap);

projectName = (String)result.get(0).get("name");

To get the Jira filter name from filter ID xxxxxx using the URL:

How can I find when(date of creation) was a filter created?

Thank you for the search query. That has helped me enormously - not least of which because it showed someone was giving me an incorrect filter ID!
