Saved Filters

Licences that have been inactive since before 4 April 2023 may lose any saved filters and other preferences due to the app's ongoing performance and maintenance improvements. To mitigate this and ensure that saved functions and filters continue to work, you must have reactivated your license by the end of June 2023.

You can access your Enhanced Search JQL queries that have been saved as filters from the top left Saved Filters section of the Enhanced Search page. Any of your saved filters can be shared with other users. However, only the owner of a filter can make edits to it.

If you share a filter with another user, they can only view the JQL. In order to modify the filter, they will need to contact the owner of that filter or create a new filter using the JQL, in which case they will then become the owner.

From here, you can understand and work with saved filters in several ways:

1PrivateIndicates that this is not a shared filter. You can edit the filter if you want to share it.
2View MoreView the owner of a shared filter.
3SharedIndicates that this is a shared filter. You can edit the filter if you do not want to share it.
4Delete FilterClick View More to delete a saved filter.
5New FilterCreate a new filter search.
6Edit FilterModify an existing saved filter's details, including how it is shared.

Recently, we've made some performance and reliability improvements, which means we do not update the search results for Enhanced Search saved filters that have not been used in Jira for 2 months or more. Specifically, using the saved filter refers to viewing it in a Jira search, a dashboard or an agile board powered by the filter, or other such instances, such as being part of a Confluence macro that uses the filter. Note that viewing the search results for those saved filters does not count as actually using them.
