Define Global Variable (jira 5.0)

I have seen a number of posts, but nothing that clearly identifies how or if it's possible.

I'm simply trying to DEFINE A GLOBAL VARIABLE, that I can then reference in a filter so that I can setup a dashboard.

Specifically for dev release numbers and qa release numbers, etc.

Is this possible (without using bamboo)?

If you are looking at avoiding overhead in terms of maintaining this in multiple filters, the easiest option is filter using existing filters.

So, in practice you will create a filter containing your primary filter criteria (release numbers etc.) save it and your remaining filters will be based on this filter. The JQL for the remaining filters will essentially start with "filterid = primary_filter_id and ...."

Perfect. Thank you very much. This is exactly what I needed. I guess I was just thinking about it the wrong way.

Thank you.

A small update for Jira 6.x - the way to use a global condition is to add to all other conditions:

AND filter = "Filter Name"
