Approval Filter/Dashboard

We would like to create a filter/dashboard that shows a list of all the issues that require/awaiting "my" approval. This would be similar to the common "Assigned to Me" type gadget (except for approval).

As an example, where I am configured as an approver in the "Users" column of the "Approval Administration"/Approval Configuration Screen. Ideally, I would also be able to distinguish whether I have cast/actioned my approval or not.

I can see from the HAP Database documentation that AO_D195E9_APPROVAL.USERS and AO_D195E9_ISSUE_APPROVAL.APPROVAL_STATUS would help, but not sure how to retrieve them.

Is there a way to do this (via JQL?). If so, how do I go about this?

The JQL functions currently provided by the add-on (https://chicago.herzum.com/confluence/display/HAP/JQL+functions) don't allow to create the filter you have required.
The filter/dashboard that shows a list of all the issues that require/awaiting "my" approval seems an useful feature and we are going to include it in our next sprint.
In particular, we are going to provide the following new JQL functions:
  • issue in mypendingForApproval(): all issues that require/awaiting logged user approval.
  • issue in myapprovedForApprovalStatus(): all issues having been approved by the logged user and not yet transitioned to the destination status of the 'transition requiring approval'
  • issue in myrejectedForApprovalStatus(): all issues having been rejected by the logged user and not yet transitioned to the destination status of the 'transition requiring approval'.


Please, let me know if it can fit your requirements.

Excellent. Yes, the JQL functions sound useful.

The just released version 2.6 provides the following new JQL functions:

  • issue in myPendingApproval(): returns all the issues having at least one approval request waiting for logged user approval action (Approve or Reject)
  • issue in myRejectedApproval(): retuns all issues having at least one approval request that has been 'Rejected' by the logged user
  • issue in myApprovedApproval(): returns all issues having at least one approval request that has been 'Approved' by the logged user.


You can review the topic on https://chicago.herzum.com/confluence/display/HAP/Approval+reply+notification+Administration.

I hope this enhancement meets your requirements.


Best Regards,
Antonella
