How yo join issue status in a query?

Hello, Newbie Question:

 

I would like to group different issues status in thre categories, for instance: 

New:

- NEW TO COMPLETE
- TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT 

In Progress

- NEED MORE INFORMATION
- PENDING
- TO BE TESTED
- IN PROGRESS

Done
- REFUSED
- VALIDATED
- VALIDATION IN PROGRESS

Do you think this is possible. Thanks in advance!

You can do this at the system level but it will apply to the status's globally.

 

There is a statusCategory you can assign each status.  Set them to Todo, In progress, and Done. 

 

Then when you query, you can key off these categories using the statusCategory field:

e.g. `statusCategory=Done`

Thanks Randy. I will give it a look

Hey Juan,

I'm not totally sure what you're trying to achieve here. So what kind of JQL query are you trying to build? Or where do you want to group the statuses?

Or do you want to group the returned issues by status category? That would be possible using "ORDER BY statusCategory" in your query.

Best, Max

Thanks Mate. I will give it a look

@Juan Velandia , In cloud, navigate to Jira Settings -> Issues -> Statuses. When you edit a status or create a new one, there will be a drop down in the middle of the dialog box that allow you to select the Status Category. 

As far as creating new or modifying existing Status category, I don't believe this is possible.
