How can I write a Jira filter to show all issues in a particular Easy Agile product increment?

We use Easy Agile Programs to run product increments for delivery.  I am aware of the "Program Increment" custom field Easy Agile uses to tag issues with product increment information. However, I am running into problems when an issue appears in multiple product increments...the "Program Increment" field becomes unreliable. 

My ultimate goal is to create a filter to reliably return all issues in a particular product increment. Most importantly, I want to return all issues in the most recent product increment.

Is this possible?

Hi Carl,

Currently, the increment custom field searching behaves differently on cloud vs server/data center.

For cloud, you will be only able to search for the most recent increment an issue was in. 

For server/data center, you will be able to search for past and current increments.

Would you be able to share the JQL query you are using? If more appropriate please reach out via a support request.

Hi Sam - Thanks for the quick response. We have Jira cloud. The behavior you describe is actually what we want...We primarily want to build JQL filters and dashboards to track the current (i.e., most recent) product increment.

Unfortunately, the behavior we are seeing differs from your description if I understand correctly. We ran our first product increment (named "PI-1") and everything went well with increment tracking. Some stories did not get completed, so we carried them over to our second increment ("PI-2"). These stories now appear in both "PI-1" and "PI-2" in the Easy Agile Programs UI. When we query the "Program Increment" field for these carryover stories, many of them show "PI-1" even though they are included in the current (i.e., most recent) increment "PI-2". 

Is it possible the "most recent" increment is the last increment into which a story was added? Even so, I don't think that would explain the behavior since we populated PI-2 after PI-1 concluded.

We use saved JQL filters to populate dashboards. We start with a fairly simple root filter called "PM - Current PI", then build other filters off of it. JQL for the "PM - Current PI" filter is: {project = "Product Planning" AND cf[10066] = PI-2} where cf[10066] is the custom field "Program Increment" you guys populate.

Please see the following screenshots for an example: PLAN-450 appears in our first and second increments, but the "Program Increment" field holds "PI-1".

Hopefully this helps




Hi Carl,

Thanks for the detail. I've been able to reproduce the problem, it seems to be only a problem for the roadmap issues. Not the issues scheduled within the sprints.

I've created a bug ticket for you and we will update you here when it's fixed.

Thanks again Carl!

Great - thanks Sam!
