Jira Filters - How to create a JQL filter that displays all issues in my Jira instance

Hi Community,

I am curious as to how one creates a filter in Jira that simply displays every issue in Jira grouped by issuetype.

So if my Jira had 20 stories, 10 Epics, and 5 subtasks. 

I would like the filter to somehow return all of them.

Also, im not sure if this is possible but when I add the filter to a dashboard I want it to show Stories: 20, Epics: 10, and Subtasks: 5.

Thank you for your time!

You don't need to create filter to show all issues - just click "Search issues" in upper nav bar, under Issues. To sort them by issue type you must have Issue Type column presented on your column, click on it to sort asc or desc.

Do you want to see a grouped statistics on dashboard? Then use Issue Statistics gadget and choose Issue Type in Statistic Type field.

Hi Roberto,

You could use the two-dimensional filter gadget.

First you need to create and save a JQL filter that shows all JIRA issue in your instance.

Apply the JQL filter in the configurations of two-dimensional filter.
For X-axis, select "Issue Type" from the dropdown list.
For Y-axis, perhaps you can select "Projects".

This would show you the number of issues you have, per issue type. The data is further broken down to the number of issues, per issue type in each project.
