JQL Replacer for Jira: 5 Key Features

undraw_Setup_wizard_re_nday (2).png

Jira is a top-rated issue and bugs tracking system, though it isn’t almighty. The larger organization or team you have, the more tasks and mistakes you are facing. If you are looking for ways to search and sample the information in the system quickly and easily, Jira has some useful sampling tools. This is the ability to create and save filters, but the standard set of features may not always help.

In case you are an "advanced" system user, the JQL (Jira Query Language) feature becomes helpful.  You need to know the basics of query building, which fields are available, and what you can do with them to build the right question.

While it can be easily done by pros, it takes quite a while for common users or managers.

Take a minute to imagine how you can speed up the process of creating your JQL query and add quick filters. No long searches – the request building occurs "on the fly". In addition, there are visual gadgets for displaying information on Jira board and convenient data editing options. 

That all is real with the new Dynamic Filter: JQL Replacer & Gadget for Jira Cloud add-on! 

 

What differs the Dynamic Filter from other add-ons? 

JQL Query Designer

It is easy to use, and you get all the necessary data in one place. You can create queries just in a few mouse clicks with Smart Fields. Thus, by enabling or disabling the required conditions, you can find the necessary query for your Jira issues quickly.

Filtering by both Smart and default Jira Fields

It is a universal tool that can speed up work with filters, queries and work with the Jira to-do list. 

How about the additional menu above the task table?

This feature allows you to filter data by issues in the results. Task types, Projects, Statuses - the more conditions, the more labels in the menu. You just need to select and control the conditions for displaying information in 2 clicks.

 

Saving request to Jira filters

Does Dynamic Filter replace standard Jira filters? The answer is: doesn’t replace, but expands! With the filter save option, you can integrate new dynamic filters from the add-on into Jira filters.

Now, your team members are having access to your terms of the quick task search. You may ask: can the Dynamic Filter add-on create all the necessary JQL queries? 

We are moving in this direction.

Not all tasks can be solved with JQL, however, with other tools, you will be able to process the data even better.

 

Visual aid

You can visualize the information results on Jira dashboard via different types of gadgets.

  • Pie Chart: allows you to display the ratio of data in the pie form.
  • Simple Counter: helps to calculate tasks, statuses, and lots of other information that you can choose in the gadget settings.
  • Issues in Dynamic Filter: displays a list of tasks according to your samples.
  • Two-Dimensional Filter: mix values of two issues fields

 

Editing "on the fly"

While working with data, sometimes you need to change the title, assignee, etc. Previously, you needed to go to another page to modify this information separately. Now you can edit "on the fly" without leaving the results page. Such fields are available for editing: the name of the task, to assign assignee or several assignees, priorities, statuses.

I do not own viva, so this application greatly simplifies the mania of life when working with filters and has much more functionality compared to standard kits. Also, dashboards are very beautiful.

Thanks for solving my nightmares.

We are still using the trial period and exploring the functionality. Yes, we are already satisfied and are considering long-term cooperation

Interesting tricks. 

JQL  not so easy to use, I must keep many commands in mind.
This JQL replacer  - very interesting thing, and can really help to found out some issues with very specific conditions!

The graphics and charts look really good, needs to test and research more closely.
