Hey, folks! Let's query some issues
Sweet Bananas team is really glad to announce that JQL Booster Pack v1.7.0-RELEASE has been shipped and can be download for FREE at Atlassian Marketplace.
This JQL Booster Pack version comes with a new JQL function, see what is new for this release:
Better Reporting for Software Teams
Are you in charge of a Software Team? If so, you will find our latest feature really interesting.
Epics are a helpful way to organize your work and to create a hierarchy. The idea is to break work down into shippable pieces, so that large projects can actually get done and you can continue to ship value to your customers on a regular basis. Epics help teams break their work down, while continuing to work towards a bigger goal.
An Epic can be broken down into specific tasks (called “stories,” or “user stories”) based on the needs/requests of customers or end users. However, there is no way to query these Epics based on their Stories statuses or fields.
Thanks to the epicsOf() function you can from now, query Epics that are related with issues matching a given subfilter. That is, you can retrieve for example all Epics where any of their associated Stories are still unresolved.
Does all this seems interesting to you? Don't hesitate to give us your feedback.
