The search box functionality will help you quickly find the things you're interested in and filter out unwanted tasks or work. The search box operates in two modes:

    • Text search mode which filters information based on the Jira summary field
    • JQL mode which, as the name suggests, filters information using JQL queries

To clear the search box, delete your search query and press the enter key or click on the magnifying glass button.

JQL Search

Start typing in the search box to open the JQL drop-down, which will help you find the query. The icon will change its color to red if the JQL query you typed in is incorrect.

For example, search for a specific issue type, such as "Task," type in the following JQL query: "issuetype = task."


Active Search

The active search box will be cleared automatically when you switch to another module and then return to the Scope Module.

Applying Filters

When the filter is active, you will see an orange dot on the filter icon.

Tasks that do not match the filter will be greyed out. This applies to parent tasks, so you can trace how lower-level tasks contribute to higher-level items.
