I can write a filter that says "id in (em-878, em-1086,em-894, em-1087)" and that's fine. But is there a way to write it so I can type in the items in the list when I execute the filter?
Something like this:
id in (GetUserInput())
No, because there's not a lot of point. The simple filtering allows you to do filtering without much complexity, and if you're going to start typing advanced queries, then you're already typing and you're probably clever enough to know you want to do more than that, so you might as well use the text in front of you.
Although for that particular query (a list of issues), you could use the Jira Toolkit, add an "issue searcher" field and then you can type in an arbitrary list of issue ids into it in the simple search.
I go to search.
I see these buttons:
Project/All Issue Type/All Status/All Assignee/All Contains text +More Criteria
I use +More Criteria to add my field 'Multi Issue Search' and it has an "All" dropdown.
When I click the All drop down nothing happens.
The field is of the type "Multi Issue Key Searcher"
Hmm. Actually, that looks like Atlassian have broken it in Jira 5.2. It doesn't work on their site either.
In 5.1 and below, the old simple-search was a list of fields, and it would appear there as a text box. I hadn't tried it on 5.2 (my clients haven't gone that high yet, for various reasons).
I think that's a bug in 5.2 and should be raised with them!
It's officially Tuesday, which means it's officially time for another tip to help you better navigate this space we call the Atlassian Community. 😄 I got a great question from community member, Sa...
