Can I filter the "Recently Created Issues Report" so that it only reports on bugs - not stories?

Jira provides canned reports, one of which is the Recently Created Issues Report.  I believe that it includes numbers for all issues regardless of whether they are bugs, stories or epics. Is there a way to filter this report, or create another similar report that provides the same information limited to bugs?

Using JQL you can create dynamic filters that can help you do this. A few suggestions to filter for recently created issues might be:

  • created > StartOfDay() (issues created since the start of this day)
  • created > StartOfWeek() (issues created since the start of this week)
  • created > StartOfMonth() (issues created since the start of this month)
  • created > -20d (issues created in the last 20 days)

And so on ...

As this is JQL, you can combine the time criteria with issue type information. So, if you want a list of only bugs created since the beginning of this week, you might set up a JQL statement like this:

created > StartOfWeek() and issuetype = Bug

Then, save your filter and use it as the source for a Filter Results gadget on a dashboard.

Helpful to a newbie. I understand now. Thank you.
