In How to make a GREAT Jira dashboard, we offered some tips on how to create great, dynamic dashboards. We understand the limitations of Jira dashboards, that’s why we’ve developed an app, Rich Filters for Jira Dashboards, to make Jira dashboards dynamic and easy to use with our addition of Quick Filters. With the Rich Filters app, you can filter by:
- Static filters – Add these as on/off buttons on your dashboard. These are based on JQL queries, Jira’s powerful and flexible querying language.
- Dynamic filters for single and multi-value fields – Dynamically filter using dropdown controls that support multiple selections and predefined values (examples: issue type, priority, component, fix version, status, labels, user pickers, check-boxes, select lists (single or multi select), etc.)
- Dynamic filters for text fields – are used for text fields such as issue summary, description, comments or custom text fields. This shows you a text box in which you can enter the terms you want to find.
- Dynamic filters for date fields – these are used for date/time fields such as created, updated, resolution date and custom date fields. Date filters allow the user to filter issues with date field values on before, after or between two dates.
- Dynamic filters for numeric fields – filter values for number fields, such as story points, business values, number of votes/watchers, and more.
- Smart filters – are displayed as buttons with drop-down lists and each option in the list applies a JQL query. This is very useful when you need to combine related queries. For instance, in the example below, the team filtering is based on a smart filter with two options – Blue Team and Purple Team. Each option applies a JQL which clearly identifies the issues of one team — i.e. assignee in (user1, user2, etc).
