Using Version in the search for Issue


I use the Version field for managing Sprints in JIRA & GH.

Many of my queries use the Version field as a filter.

Hoever, at the begining of any Sprint I must go over all my filters and update the Version = xxx to the current Sprint.

Is there any easier way to use it.

Something like a property, that I will change it and the filters will read from there?

or other solution?

You can save your current sprint version as a filter, and reference that filter from other filters.

For example, you could have a saved filter for “Current ProjectOne version”

fixVersion = "v01"

Then your filter for “Blockers in current ProjectOne version” would look like

priority = blocker and filter = "Current ProjectOne version"

When the current ProjctOne version changes, you just change the “Current ProjectOne version” filter

fixVersion = "v02"

and the “Blockers in current ProjectOne version” filter, and all other filters referencing “Current ProjectOne version” get updated.

+1 for this, we also do the same with a base filter and all other filters are based on this filter.

Hi Janiv,

maybe the JQL-Function fixVersion = earliestUnreleasedVersion(PROJECT) works for you ?

Best regards


Thanks, but it won't help.

I do have many sub versions under any Sprint:




- Server

- Mobile



- Server

So, I'll get all the versions that were not relased, but I want only the ones under Cactus one.
