JQL Booster Pack 2.0 release introduces once and again new improvements and features to further refine your search experience, this time we’ve added FIVE new JQL functions. See what is new for this release:
Query Issues that have been moved
Sometimes, an issue may belong to a different project, and you may want to move this issue to another project. Jira allows you to specify another project in your Jira instance to move your selected issue to using the Move Issue feature. As there may be significant differences in the configuration of your original project and target project, the Move Issue wizard also allows you to change certain attributes of the issue on the fly. That’s awesome isn’t it? The problem comes when you need to query this kind of action somehow…
To allow people to track this kind of action and report them, we have added the movedIssues() function within this new JQL Booster Pack version. You can now, easily track issues that has been moved and additionally further refine your query by specifying the destination or/and source project to looking for.
Search Issues with / without Comments & Subtasks
Sadly, there is no way on Jira to use the ‘IS EMPTY’ / 'NOT IS EMPTY' clausure to search for issues with / without comments or subtasks, although it is something very requested by users. We have decided then to include within this new release the hasSubtasks() and hasComments() functions to help you in this kind of situations. You can for now easily search for issues with / without comments or subtasks using these brand new functions.
Here you have some basic usage examples:
Find issues without subtasks
Find issues with subtasks
Find issues without comments
Find issues with comments
issue NOT IN hasSubtasks()
issue IN hasSubtasks()
issue NOT IN hasComments()
issue IN hasComments()
Current Relations Search Capabilities now supports Portfolio
Within the last JQL Booster Pack releases, we had introduced the possibility to query some relationships between issues, (e.g: Parent ⟷ Subtask, or Epic ⟷ Story) but we wanted to take this feature to the next level. Now we are quite happy to announce the inclusion of two new JQL functions related to this feature, portfolioChildOf() and portfolioParentOf() to allow you to query special issue relations beloging to Portfolio for Jira application.
This new set of functions will only be available if Porfolio for Jira is present in your Jira instance.
