How to query Issue Collector issues?

I have a requirement to present a Issue Collector queue as a dashboard gadget but don't know how to query for issues created by a specifice issue collector. How do I reference the collectorid in JQL?

Thanks for any help.

Hi Bruce,

--I'm afraid that this is will not be possible as the labels field that gets the collectorid is not seachable like that.--

Scrach that. What you can do it to use the JQL for the environment field:

environment ~ "location user-agent referrer"

Of course, this will also get other issues that are might have the data already or that is entered manually, but it's an alterntive.

You can use a custom field ( to set a specific value to the issue which you can then query against.


I ended up adding new unique environment variable, and that did the trick.

environment : {
        'Custom env variable'  : 'hidden_value'

Now a simple text search returns all the issue collector issues. I may simply replace that value with Issue collector id and achieve the same result.

Thanks for guiding me in the right direction.
