Need a JQL query to extract the required issues based on some conditions involving project roles in Jira 4.4.5

We are using Jira 4.4.5

We are in need of a JQL query that should provide the results as per the below conditions;

All Issues where Issue Type = Defect AND Evnironment = SIT Group by Project Role.

Say we have 3 project roles - SA, BA, QA. We need to find the defects raised in SIT by SA / BA / QA.

How can this be achieved?

Please provide the JQL query.

The docs give you a simple example on https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Advanced+Searching

project in projectsWhereUserHasRole("Developers") AND status = Open

Obviously, drop the status clause and add your own for multiple roles, issue type and environment.

Hi Nic, Thanks for the response. However this query works for the logged in user.

It checks for the current loggedin user's role.

We need to have a the query to work as Grouup by.

The actual requirement is to have a Pie Chart in the dashboard which displays the defects raised in the SIT env by project roles - QA / SA/ BA.

Please elt me know if the query can be modified so as to achieve this.

That's slightly tricky, if the user is present on multiple roles, what do you want to do?

You can use script runner and write a custom field the returns the first project role of the reporter. Use that field to plot it in a pie chart.

You need to write the logic to get all project roles, then do a loop to get all project role actors (ProjectRoleManager) for the project and then find the first one that matches the user.

I don't have any ready made script, I guess if you search this forum you can find snippets to get it working.

Remember, this field may become a computation intensive one, so using it on large filters may cause performance issues, if you instance is large and has lot of users being returned for each of the roles.
