Search advanced with JQL


Issue Checklist provides Checklist Text field, which can be used to build advanced search queries. 

It allows users to search for issues in Basic or Advanced-JQL mode for item text and item status. Read more about issue search in JIRA.

There is also Basic Search functionality available.

Prerequisites

"Save checklist data to Jira custom fields" option enabled in Global Settings

Examples

Following JQL examples can be combined with any other JQL clauses. Read more about advanced search and JQL in JIRA.

Search for all issues with an empty checklist (no items):

"Checklist Text" is EMPTY

Search for all issues with an item containing "abc" word:

"Checklist Text" ~ "abc"

Search for all issues with items in "Skipped" status (statuses must be enabled):

"Checklist Text" ~ "\\[skipped\\]"

Search for all issues containing checklist item with given user mention:

"Checklist Text" ~ "\"@b0926e6a-bbb4-460e-a2c5-37811d\""

Please note that that the "b0926e6a-bbb4-460e-a2c5-37811d" is an Atlassian Account ID for a user. Read how to find user account ID

It is possible to quickly see items with given user mentions through the Assigned Items page.

Display "My items" on the Jira Dashboard

It is possible to save the JQL as a filter in Jira and then display the results of an issue filter on the Jira Dashboard using "Filter Results Gadget". 

Search for all issues with an item "abc" that is checked (item is completed). This example assumes that Statuses are not enabled in Global Settings. 

"Checklist Text" ~ "\\[x\\] abc"
