What is used for?

When I go to Advanced Search on the issue navigator and type in "issue" (without "") then I am shown four options:

  • issue
  • issuekey
  • issuetype

What is "" here? How can I use it? What does it do?

I understand and can use the others but for I can't find any information.

There are a lot of properties of a JIRA issue which you can use to search. "key" and "type" are 2 of them.

An example to use issue property to search JIRA issue as following:

project = KUDOS and[""].value ~ "email"

Very interesting. Is there any documentation for this? Where can we find the supported property values?

Thanks @Nga Anh [Atlassian]. Looks like there is no definite set but a plugin or piece of code can add it if needed. When you said 'key' and 'type' are already available, I thought there is a definite set of properties already set on them. I got an empty array of keys when I tried this on Cloud.

@Nga LaiMay you please communicate this page documentation new location? Thank you in advance

Various apps add entity properties to an issue so the properties for your installation will be unique. You can view the entity properties on an issue via the REST API by logging into Jira, revising this URL to match your installation and issue key, and opening it in a new tab:
