In the issue navigator, there is a small icon that used to give a link to the current search. That link would contain no information of any filter that may have been used for the search. Then I could email that link to a collegue (or rather I could include that link in an email with lots of other information).
Now it seems that the icon either gives a link of the form https://mycompany.jira.com/issues/?filter=13902 or https://mycompany.jira.com/issues/?filter=13902&jql=project%20%3D%20PC%20AND%20issuetype%20in%20standardIssueTypes%28%29%20AND%20status%20in%20%28%22In%20Progress%22%2C%20Reopened%2C%20%22Approved%20for%20Implementation%22%2C%20Specifying%2C%20%22Failed%20QA%22%2C%20Created%2C%20Implementing%2C%20%22In%20QA%2Fbug%20free%22%2C%20%22In%20QA%2Fdesired%20functionality%22%2C%20%22Ready%20for%20QA%2Fbug%20free%22%2C%20%22Ready%20for%20QA%2Fdes.func.%22%2C%20%22Approved%20for%20Specification%22%29%20AN...
Note that in the second link, it starts with "filter=13902", which makes the link unusable by my collegues since that filter is not shared (which I usually don't want to).
And, the sharing of a search (the icon on the issue navigator) is not what I want. I want to send the email using my normal email client and include other information (more than a short message).
What am I doing wrong, or how do I fix it?
The filter id got included, since you started your search with an existing saved filter. If you start a new search, add your criteria and get the permlink, it won't contain a filter id.
Once got, use a URL shortener and send it in the email - http://goo.gl/
But it's very often that I use one of my own filters, perhaps change the sort or some minor search parameter, and then send it off to some collegue. The benefit of having the parameter in the URL is as far as I understand very minor, and it causes a lot of problems!
To start a new filter and enter the same parameters as I have in an existing filter seems like a total waste of time...
And it used to not have the filter id in the URL, at least like 6 months ago.
I'm sorry, but I think you're missing the point.
I don't want to create another filter. I don't want to have to copy/paste JQL. I just want a collegue to see the list of issues I'm currently watching. To get a URL that I can send of in an email. I used to be able to do that by clicking the "permanent link to this search", but that functionality is changed.
Thanks for the effort though! :-)
Well, now it would appear that in Jira 6, the permanent link icon is gone completely! :-( Anyone know if it was relocated? The "Share" functionality is useless for what i want to do, since it doesn't include the actual filter details, only the filter ID. What I want to do is to get the full URL for the search, to include in an email or paste in a web page - like it used to work. Any ideas where this functionality is located in Jira 6? Thanks.
