What is a Rich Filter

All the gadgets added by the Rich Filters for Jira Dashboards app are based on a data source called Rich Filter. A rich filter is based on a Jira native filter, extending the Jira native filter to include additional definitions for extra filtering, issue highlighting, multiple views for the results and other settings that can be used by the Rich Filter Gadgets.

What is a Rich Filter Gadget

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 are linked together in a dashboard if they share the same rich filter. For example, a Rich Filter Controller gadget can change the data displayed by a Rich Filter Results gadget if both the Rich Filter Controller and the Rich Filter Results are based on the same rich filter.
