Jira Cloud Android App and External Links (Deep Linking / Intents)

I was wondering if there is an official list of supported Deep Links or Intents we can trigger for the Android app? When trying to load a search query from the web on Android, I'm asked if I'd like to open the following link in Chrome or the Jira Cloud app. If I pick the Jira App I get an error "Unable to open in app." It will load fine in the web version though.



Is there another way to format this link that the Android app will be able to successfully parse and open? 

I assume the correct way would be to use an Intent Extra, but I can't find any info on the Android App that points me in the right direction.

Hi @Kyle McArdle, I am the JIRA Android Team lead and I can tell you that you can solve this issue by sending a filter. We do open filters in the app. We didn't have any request before of opening search queries but it is a good idea and will add it to our backlog. 


So any share filter or a filter that the user has access would be ok.


Is there a way to create a dynamic filter? Basically all I have coming from the end user is a number, which corresponds to a custom field (in this case, "Evidence ID"). So I have to dynamically generate the URL on the fly, then redirect the user to that url on the front-end.

As far as I can see, filters have to be pre-defined, so I'm not sure how this would work, unless I'm just missing something obvious here.

Thanks @Carlos Khatchikian

You can build urls for direct searches.  For example

https://yourjira.com/issues/?jql=project%20%3D%20A Project%20and%20%22Project%20Manager%22%20%3D%20dave

is a search for issues in "A Project", with a Project manager who logs in as "dave"

@Kyle McArdle sorry but you can do what @Nic Brough [Adaptavist] said but we are still not opening those links in the mobile apps. It should be hard to implement, I already raised the request , if we get some traction we will do it but I cannot commit to any timelines...

Thanks for raising this ;)
