Transform user natural-language text into a JQL query

JQL, or Jira Query Language, is a powerful tool for searching and filtering issues in Jira. With JQL, you can use a variety of search criteria to find the issues you need. This can be especially useful if you have a large number of issues in your Jira instance and you need to find specific ones quickly.

What is JQL?

To use JQL, you will first need to open the search function in Jira and enter your query into the search bar. The JQL syntax consists of keywords, operators, and values, which can be combined to create a query that meets your specific search criteria. For example, you might use the keyword "project" to search for issues within a particular project, or the operator ">=" to find issues that have been assigned a particular priority level or higher.

There are many different ways to use JQL to search for issues in Jira. You can use it to find issues based on their status, assignee, label, or any other field that is available in Jira. You can also use it to search for issues within a particular time frame or to find issues that have been updated recently.

One of the key benefits of using JQL is that it allows you to find the issues that you need quickly and easily. Whether you are a project manager trying to track the progress of your team, or a developer looking for issues to work on, JQL can help you find the information that you need.

So if you want to make the most of your Jira instance, start using JQL today to search and filter your issues. With a little practice, you'll be able to find exactly what you need in no time.

What if you don't know how to write JQL queries?

Not every user has a technical background and can easily understand the JQL query syntax. Therefore, the SaaSJet team offers its solution in the form of a Text to JQL gadget.


Text to JQL is a powerful tool that allows users to quickly and easily search for issues in Jira using JQL (Jira Query Language). With Text to JQL, you can simply type in a natural language query, and the app will automatically convert it into a valid JQL search.

For example, you can type in a query like "Show me all the open issues in the project ABC that are assigned to John" and Text to JQL will automatically convert it into a JQL query like "project = ABC AND status = open AND assignee = John". This makes it much easier for users to search for issues in Jira, especially if they are not familiar with the JQL syntax.

In addition to natural language search, Text to JQL also provides advanced search options that allow you to fine-tune your queries using the full range of JQL keywords, operators, and values. This makes it easy to find the exact issues you are looking for, no matter how complex your search criteria may be.

Overall, Text to JQL is a valuable tool for anyone who uses Jira and needs to search for issues quickly and easily. Whether you are a project manager, developer, or simply someone who uses Jira to track tasks and issues, Text to JQL can help you find the information you need in no time.

The gadget is free. Try and enjoy it - Text to JQL.
