In a plugin that implements a new Action, I would like to redirect to the original search filter upon completion

I created a plugin that implements a new action ("create subtasks for versions"). This action creates a number of subtasks for a selected group of versions. Typically a user would use this action from a bug when in a search filter (e.g., "unscheduled")

When the action is complete, I know how to redirect to the bug, but I cannot figure out how to redirect back to the original search filter URL. Is this possible?

Got it:

@Override

protected String doPostCreationTasks() throws Exception {
        String rtn = "/browse/" + getOrigIssueKey();
        SearchRequest searchRequest = getSearchRequest();
        if (searchRequest != null) {
            rtn += "?filter=" + searchRequest.getId();
        }
        return returnComplete(rtn);
    }

IssueActionSupport.getSearchRequest is what I needed.

Is this possible?

I know that it is possible. I just cannot remember how to get it out of the session. Take a look at the com.atlassian.jira.web.action.issue.IssueNavigator class.
