Is there a way I can stop completed tasks showing in my Components list?

My components list is showing tasks that have been "Done", is there a way I can disable this so they don't show. I don't really want to go into completed tasks and remove the component from each one.

Please provide a screenshot. I'd rather not guess. smile

A screenshot of what?

I'd love to help but I'm not sure of what the issue is. A screenshot or more detail would help me understand. smile

Same here - "components list showing done tasks" makes a lot of sense, but is somehow slightly too vague to be telling us what the problem is.

Can't add a screenshot of the company jira, so I will try to add more detail. I am using Component field to categorise our tasks. I want to use the Components section - url is /[project code]?selectedItem=com.atlassian.jira.jira-projects-plugin:components-page - to see all outstanding tasks for each component. But that section shows all tasks ever created no matter what status they have.

When I then click on the "Issues" link under each Component the search is (for eg):

project = OV AND component = API

I could edit the search to add status=unresolved and create a filter for each component but I don't want to waste time doing that (we have a lot of components!) - and wondered if I have missed a Project admin setting re components.

Can't give any more detail, I would guess if it's not clear it is because I am trying to do something I can't do! Thanks for the responses.

Ah, no, you'd need to hack the code providing the summary screen to add that filter to your display.

Yeah as Nic says that's hard-coded as a function of that screen.You may be better off using a Issue Statistics dashboard gadget.

  1. Add the Issue Statistics gadget to a dashboard
  2. Point the gadget to the project in question
  3. Set the field to Component/s
  4. Ensure that 'show resolved issues' is not selected


This will get you the same information, minus resolved issues.

Steven, thanks - the Issue Stats dashboard idea worked a treat!
