Working with Rich Filter Gadgets

The gadgets provided by the Rich Filters for Jira Dashboards app are called Rich Filter gadgets. All rich filter gadgets are based on rich filters and have one particular property – two or more rich filter gadgets on a dashboard are linked together if they share the same rich filter.

The first rich filter gadget described in this section is the Rich Filter Controller. This gadget displays buttons that control which issues are displayed by the other rich filter gadgets. All the other rich filter gadgets display results based on issue data. This section presents all the rich filter gadgets and the way they can be configured.

You don’t need to do anything to connect the gadgets: when placed on the same dashboard, all gadgets configured to use the same rich filter are automatically connected to each other. When you enable or disable quick filters (static, dynamic or smart filters) in the controller, the new filtering configuration defines a new collection of issues and all the other gadgets automatically reload their data based on this new issue collection.

You can have gadgets that use two (or more) rich filters on the same dashboard. They will not affect each other, even if the two rich filters have quick filters with the same name.

You can also use any other gadgets from Jira on the same dashboard with rich filter gadgets; however, these other gadgets will not be affected by the quick filters.
