ScriptRunner Cloud JQL aliases for Jira Cloud

alexmears September 23, 2018


Script runner Cloud has a search console that doesn't integrate with Jira JQL

Individual search queries cannot be linked to, have boards created from them, bulk edited, and a number of other Jira functionality that we used day to day.


1. How can I vote on having ScriptRunner Enhanced Search integrated into Jira Cloud JQL?

2. Is there a way on Jira Cloud (using Script Runner) to create JQL aliases / auto-populated fields that can then searched for using JQL?

Hi Alex,

I can confirm that you must use the Enhanced Search page inside of Jira cloud in order to construct filters which use the JQL functions provided by ScriptRunner.

However once you have constructed the filter that you require then save it as a filter which you can view on the standard Jira Filters page by following the steps outlined below.

  1. Navigate to the enhanced search page and construct the filter you require using the JQL functions provided bv ScriptRunner.
  2. Save your filter and share it with the users that are required to be able to see it.
  3. Create a standard JQL filter which references the results from the enhanced search and reference the saved filter using the syntax shown below which will return the results of your filter using the JQL functions provided by ScriptRunner so that you can use this standard jira filter in the Agile board which you require.
filter = "<NameOfFilterHere>"

If this response has answered your question can you please mark it as accepted so that other users can see it is correct when searching for similar answers.
