What is issue.property used for?

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

  • issue
  • issue.property
  • issuekey
  • issuetype

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

I understand and can use the others but for issue.property 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 issue.property["request.channel.type"].value ~ "email"

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

Good question, Jobin - you got my vote. Im also curious about this.

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.
