Hi every body,
I've written and tested a native JQL function. My question is, it is possible to create custom functions to use it in JQL search field ?
for exmaple: issueKey=Proj-2131 AND myFunction(key-12345) AND projectId = .....
Has anyone out there successfully create a cloud usable function, if so - how?
Thank you in advance
If you read ACJIRA-5, the JIRA issue that Robert linked, you'll notice that they are offering Entity Properties as an alternative to JQL functions. This is why Robert offered the workaround to use the Entity Properties.
You can apply properties to an issue. You can alias the property for searching via JQL, which will allow users to retrieve issues that match the appropriate property.
I don't think that Atlassian Connect will give this to you either. Historically we have avoided allowing add-on provided JQL functions and have told people to use entity property index's instead: https://ecosystem.atlassian.net/browse/ACJIRA-5
You can raise another feature request in that JIRA project if you like.
However, my suspicion is that you can use indexed add-on entity properties to work around the need for a custom function instead. Have a look at the documentation for that: https://developer.atlassian.com/static/connect/docs/latest/modules/jira/entity-property.html
