I would like to search my project for the top 3 ranked issues. I thought about using something like "LIMIT", but it looks like JQL does not support that. For example, if Jira did have LIMIT support, I would be able to use a query like the one below to find the top 3 ranked open bugs in my project:
project = "My Project" and resolution = unresolved and type = bug order by rank LIMIT 3
Is there another way to achieve this same result without LIMIT? Does Jira store the "Rank" value in a field somewhere? What is the mechanism that Jira uses to detemine and store Rank? I'm thinking that if Jira stores this information in a field, I could then write JQL to search for rank within certain values. For example, if Jira used a field named "Rank Number", I could write something like:
project = "My Project" and resolution = unresolved and type = bug and "Rank Number" >= 1 and "Rank Number" <= 3
Ultimately, what I'm trying to do is notify my coworkers when they have an open bug assigned to them that is ranked in the top 3. I want to use JQL to find these issues, then have each of my coworkers set up a subscription so that they are emailed whenever the search yields any results. I want to use a JQL query like the below to set up their subscriptions:
project = "My Project" and resolution = unresolved and type = bug and assignee = currentUser() and "Rank Number" >= 1 and "Rank Number" <= 3
Which field should I use in place of "Rank Number" in that query?
To do this inside JIRA you'd need to have something that periodically runs the JQL and then clears old labels or fields, and then sets the labels or fields in the top 3 issues. Better to do it with a script that uses REST to run the JQL and then sends email
How do you compare that field though? It looks like Jira assigns jibberish values to the field "Custom Field (Rank)". For example, here are the values that I'm seeing assigned to that field:
How do I compare those values if I'm looking for the top 3 ?
