Is there a way to report on the Labels within a Next-Gen project?

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a way to report on the number of tickets with a particular label applied - i.e. the number of stories with the label of "techdebt" applied, how many of those have been marked as 'done', etc.

Is there a way to filter the information? I'm happy for the process to be a bit manual.

Many thanks,

Hi @Mel Jensen ,

In addition to @Bill Sheboy's excellent suggestion, there is also an App that can make this a bit easier. Project Labels is designed to help manage labels on a per project basis and gives you an overview of all labels used in a project. It looks like this:

The links are clickable and open a JQL query similar to the one Bill described. You can also edit a label here and get that label updated on all issues in your project. And of course, it works with next-gen projects, too.

If you are more technically inclined, it's also possible to use the Jira Expressions API to get the information you want. Check this article to see how it can be done. 


Hope that helps,

Full disclosure: I work for Jodocus, the Marketplace Partner behind Project Labels. Let me know if you need any help getting started, have any questions or feedback for us.

Many thanks @Oliver Siebenmarck _Polymetis Apps_ - I will certainly check this out

Hi @Mel Jensen 

To do this you may used Filters > Advanced Issue Search

With a JQL query something like this:

project = myProject AND labels IN (techdebt) ORDER BY Key

Then, add the columns you want, such as Status.  You can learn more about filters here:


Best regards,


Many thanks @Bill Sheboy  - That's exactly what I need.
