Tracker tips and tricks
On every tracker page you can find search box. Quick search is much more powerful than you might think.
Examples of the quick searches:
|Quick search||Advanced search equivalent||Description|
|Find all unresolved Bugs in Moodle project that contain words |
|Find all ongoing issues assigned to me|
Quick search can pick up many other keywords, see more information on page Using quick search
To get here either enter something in quick search or go to the link Tracker search page and switch it to "Advanced" mode. Now you can enter queries in the Jira Query Language (JQL). Use as many AND, OR and parenthesis as you want. Some examples and interesting subqueries:
|only issues inside project Moodle|
|Best way to search for open issues|
|where component is either Assignment or Gradebook|
|where both Assignment and Gradebook are listed as components|
|issues containing particular label|
|issues NOT containing particular label(s)|
|updated in the last week|
|open issues where you are an assignee|
|issues reported by you|
|issues where you commented, edited or otherwise participated|
|open issues in the components where you are an automatic watcher (only tracker admins can assign automatic watchers)|
|issues assigned to members of hq-developers group|
|issues waiting for peer review for over a week|
|issues linked to particular issue|
|Returns all the issues directly and indirectly duplicated by 'MDL-12345'. i.e. if there is 'MDL-12222' duplicated by 'MDL-12345' and 'MDL-11111' duplicated by 'MDL-12222', both 'MDL-11111' and 'MDL-12222' will be returned as search results.|
|issues that you marked as favourite|

Creating a filter
In tracker, select Issues > Search for Issues.
Create a search and run the search query by pressing Enter or clicking the Search button to the right of the search box. For example, this is the query for untriaged issues in your component:
component in (Assignment) AND resolution = Unresolved AND (labels is EMPTY OR labels not in (triaged)) ORDER BY created DESC
When the search query results are displayed, click the Save as button and give it an appropriate name. For instance, for the previous query you can use "Untriaged Assignment issues".
Now you can quickly access your filters but also you can subscribe to it, Click on Details:
You can also add New subscription if you want to be notified periodically about new issues in any of the filters you've created.
You can manage your filters and subscriptions on Manage filters page.
Watchers automatically receive notifications about the updates of the issues they are watching. Using filter subscription you can either monitor issues that you are not watching or monitor issues that are in particular state and were not updated.
