Searching for an Issue in JIRA Filter

If I have a filter called "foo", how I can search for all issues in "foo" that have the status = "Open"? Is there a way to achieve this? I'd like to base multiple JQL queries on "foo" and present different results.

yeah, I need to do this all the time also. So I typically create 3 filter as follows (example purposes only):

- foo everything (JQL: project = "project x" and type not in (producer tasks, clarifications)"

- foo unresolved (JQL: filter = foo and resolution = unresolved)

- foo resolved (JQL: filter = foo and resolution = resolved)

The "foo everything" filter basically provides the baseline filter, which is then re-used by other filters. Thus, if you need to update something in baseline its more efficient that needing to update N other filters.

Hope this helps!

Thank you Ian. This works!

Assuming 'foo' is a project then:
project = foo and status = Open

I am sure I didn't get what you actually wanted, since my answer looks too obvious :)
