JQL Functions


List of JQL Functions:

 


linkedIssuesFromFilter()

Finds all issues which are linked by specified relation with those found by saved filter. When relationDirection is provided then relation should also be provided. 
When recursionNumber is specified then issues linked to found linked issues are also considered as a result.

Since version 2.10.0 we added relationDescription handling in queries.

Parameters:

  • filter - could be given by name or its id.
  • relation - is optional and given by name (about relation parameter more information in FAQ section), name of relation (or relation description) must match names that are set in configuration, by default they start with capital letter see more
  • relationDescription  avilable since version 2.10.0  (about relation description parameter more information in FAQ section), must match descriptions that are set in configuration, see more
  • relationDirection - optional, have values inward or outward (do not provide if you choose direction by relation description)
  • recursionNumber - optional, have positive integer values (not supported with relation description parameter)

Syntax:

 

linkedIssuesFromFilter(filter)
linkedIssuesFromFilter(filter, relation)
linkedIssuesFromFilter(filter, relation, relationDirection)
linkedIssuesFromFilter(filter, relation, relationDirection, recursionNumber)

numberOfLinkedIssuesFromQuery()

This function is available in 2.5.0 plugin version and later.

Finds all issues which number of linked issue meet a condition. Relation type and direction is not analyse by function so all linked issues are proceeded to check condition. Query has three required parameters.

Parameters:

  • JQL- JQL query to analyse.
  • mathematicalSymbol- available symbols ==, <=, !=, >=, >, <
  • numberOfLinkedIssues- number of linked issues

Syntax:

 

numberOfLinkedIssuesFromQuery(JQL, mathematicalSymbol, numberOfLinkedIssues)

Examples:

Finds all linked issues from DEMO project which contain more than two linked issues.
issue in linkedIssuesFromQuery("project = DEMO",">","2")

numberOfLinkedIssuesFromFilter()


This function is available in 2.5.0 plugin version and later.

Finds all issues which number of linked issue meet a condition. Relation type and direction is not analyse by function so all linked issues are proceeded to check condition. Query has three required parameters.

Parameters:

  • filter - could be given by name or its id.
  • mathematicalSymbol- available symbols ==, <=, !=, >=, >, <
  • numberOfLinkedIssues- number of linked issues

Syntax:

 

numberOfLinkedIssuesFromQuery(filter, mathematicalSymbol, numberOfLinkedIssues)

Examples:

Finds all linked issues returned by myFilter which contain less than three linked issues.
issue in linkedIssuesFromQuery("myFilter","<","3")
Finds all linked issues returned by 102011 filter id which contain exacly one linked issue.
issue in linkedIssuesFromQuery("102011","==","1")

 

having...()

This function is available in 2.4.0 plugin version and later.

Since version 2.10.0 we added relationDescription handling in queries.

All the above functions have their  having...  counterparts:

havingLinkedIssuesFromQuery(...),  

havingLinkedIssuesFromFilter(...),  

havingSubtaskIssuesFromQuery(...)

havingSubtaskIssuesFromFilter(...)

havingParentIssuesFromQuery(...),  

havingParentIssuesFromFilter(...).

 

Those functions do the same task as the previously-existing functions, but return not the link 'targets', but link 'sources' that generated the targetshavingXXXX("subquery") is equivalent to: reversedXXX("") and subquery, (where "" is a subquery which matches all the issues).

For example:

 

issue in havingSubtaskIssuesFromQuery("text ~ linux")

returns those issues which are parents of some subtask issues, and contain linux text somewhere. This is equivalent to (but faster than) this query:

 

issue in parentIssuesFromQuery("") and text ~ linux

Note that this is not the same as query:

 

issue in parentIssuesFromQuery("text ~ linux")

which returns parent issues of subtask issues containing linux (returned parents themselves don't have to contain linux).


Similarly other having... queries work.
