    Search Intent for JIRA

    Search Intent provides a custom field called "SearchIntent" and a set of advanced JQL functions. Search Intent functions cater for use cases where the number of matched issues is large and performance is important.

    Currently provided functions are:

    • parentsInQuery
    • parentsInFilter

    These functions query all standard issue type issues and return matches as well as all their subtasks.

    Put differently, whether a subtask is included in the result set is solely dependent on whether the parent matches the query, not of the subtask itself.

    These functions can be useful in GreenHopper, e.g. to target standard issue types or specific assignees. In these cases subtasks often are expected to be included in the board, but given that they don't match the base query they won't show up by default.

    How to use

    The plugin creates a new custom field called "SearchIntent". Use this together with one of the provided functions to query issues

    parentsInQuery Example


    JQL: "issueType = Bug"


    JQL: SearchIntent = parentsInQuery("issueType = Bug")

    parentsInFilter Example


    JQL: filter = "my named filter"


    JQL: SearchIntent = parentsInFilter("my named filter")
