No, such JQL doesn't exist. The only way to examine all same summary values is to export all issues (only fields issuekey and summary) to excel and summarize in excel.


Thanks for your answer. But we have 4000 > issues in a single project and almost 1000> in another 5 projects. Daily we get 20- 30 issues in a project.

May be it might cause performnace issues to export and import them again..??

It would depends how many issues you export at a time as exporting too many issues at a time would resulted in huge memory consumption and would cause outofmemory error.

Why don't you just do it in the database... count (*), summary, group by summary having count(*) > 1.

Do you search all issues which have the same summary as one selected issue or do you want to have a duplicate search over all (or over the result of a jql search)?

Has this search to be available for "nornal" users or a administrators enough?


I need to search for all issues and limited to only Administrators.

Appreciate your help...


Perhaps using jql such as:

assignee in membersOf("jira-developers")
