Chapter 2. Searching in JIRA

This chapter has a detailed explanation of how data can be fetched from JIRA. The data is used for analysis, reporting, and taking appropriate action. The Issue Navigator window offers a very easy mechanism to search for issues, but it's possible to write queries using JIRA Query Language (JQL) to refine the search results. You will learn how to save the search results as filters and charts that can be added in the dashboard. This can be shared with other users and can also serve as a data source for various gadgets.

We will cover the following topics:

  • The Issue Navigator window

  • Searching the issues
