Structure.gantt – How do I filter by "gantt start date" in Structure?

Within Structure.gantt, there is a column named "Gantt Start Date" that can't be accessed via JQL.  Inside my structure, I would like to filter based on "gantt start date" to find all tasks that need to be started before a certain date.  I know that you can't search for "gantt start date" in JQL, but is there any other way (perhaps using column formulas) to filter out things based on either of the "Gantt Start/End Date" columns? Is there a workaround to achieve this inside the Structure itself?  


The effect that I'm trying to achieve is below:

resolution = unresolved and gantt_start_date < '2020-05-01'

Hi Eric,

At the moment, JQL cannot pick up various calculated attributes, but we have plans to introduce such functions. Without those, there are not many options left, but perhaps you can use Wiki Markup to highlight the required issues. It is not as effective as hiding the rows, but may help in your task.

Hello Egor,

Thank you for your reply.  Is there a work around for sorting by 'Gantt Start Date' in Structure.gantt?  Effectively, I just want to sort the column shown here: 



Hi Eric,

There is a problem here, that infinite loop is possible in this scenario, so sorting and grouping have been disabled until the problem can be resolved. There is a trick, but it can trigger the same loop, so I am not sure it is wise to reveal it at the moment publicly. You can theoretically stumble upon it though, so I am just warning that it may make this particular structure in question inoperable until Gantt is disabled and workaround removed.

Sorry for the inconvenience.


Hi Eric!


Starting from Structure.Gantt 2.4 it should be possible to sort gantt dates by clicking the header of the corresponding column. Please, give it a try.


Best regards,

Hello, @alexeypegov

Yes, I have tried sorting by "Gantt Sort Date" and it does function correctly.  Thank you very much for helping !
