Is it possible to add "Security Level" filter in simple search using JIRA 5.1?

I am using JIRA 5.1.4 and I want to search issues by "Security Level" filter.

I was able to achieve it using Advanced Search but not in Simple Search.

Is this functionality available in JIRA 5.1?

try to use "level =" in your JQL

this will filter out available security levels

edit: sorry missed your most important line...

atm only in advanced mode...

Faysal, thanks for the quick answer. Additional question, how to check the security level id of the existing security levels?


you can get the ID by browing your security levels and hover the cursor on the "Add" or "Delete" link.

if your browser is set to show statusbar (window bottom) you will find an URL containing something like


this will be your security level ID

also a direct db query can show this

select ID,NAME,SCHEME from schemeissuesecuritylevels;
