List all project with open issues


is it possible to list all projects with open issues.

Can the filter be shown in the 'Browse Projects' tab/screen. You seem to have a 'Manage filters' under the menu 'Issues' but not under 'Projects'


Thanks for any answer.

There is no search for projects, JIRA is an issue tracker and hence searches for issues.

You can easily get the list though.  Run a filter for "resolution is empty" to get a list of all open issues.  Save it with a useful name.  Go to your dashboard (you may want to create a new one for this), and add a "filter statistics" gadget.  Tell it to use your saved filter and select "project" as the statistic.

"Manage filters" is under issues because JQL is meant for fetching issues and "project" can be one of the columns in the search results with list of issues.

To list all projects with open issues.

I would write a jql 

resolution is empty

This fetches all issues then in the columns fetch the "project" column which gives the project list.  You can also use the filter gadget "filter results" to fetch the JQL results and project column on the dashboard gadget.

Related question! Can we get the list of JIRA projects which have no issues?

No, because a search returns issues.  If there are none, there's nothing to search for.

The best you can do is repeat the stuff above to get a list of projects that do have issues, then subtract that from the complete list in Admin -> Projects.

Can I pull it from JIRA DB instead? I have an Oracle SQL Developer installed and I added a connection to JIRA
