Managing Rich Filters

The Manage Rich Filters page allows you to create, navigate through and edit existing rich filters. In order to access the Manage Rich Filters page, simply open the Issues section of JIRA’s main menu and click on Manage rich filters.

By default, the Manage Rich Filters page lists all the rich filters that you are allowed to view. (See Rights and Permissions for more about access rights.)

Once you are on the Manage Rich Filters page, you can do the following operations:

To do the following: Do this:
Create a new Rich Filter

You need to have the Create Rich Filters permission in order to perform this operation.

Click on Create Rich Filter button on the right of the screen.

Insert a name, select an existing native JIRA saved filter as a base for your Rich Filter and click on the Create button.

Find an Existing Rich Filter

Use the search box at the top left to search for rich filters, based on their name, their JIRA saved filter’s name, and their administrators.

You can see only the rich filters that are based on JIRA saved filters that are shared with you and the rich filters you’re and administrator of. If you are an administrator of a rich filter but the base JIRA saved filter is not shared with you, then you'll be able to see the rich filter but not the filter it's based on (you'll see only the id of the filter and you'll be able to change it if you want).

View/Edit the configuration of a Rich Filter

If you can see a rich filter on the Manage Rich Filters page then you can also view its configuration. But only the  rich filter’s administrators and JIRA Administrators can change (edit) the configuration of the Rich Filter. See the Rights and Permissions section for more about access rights.

Simply click on the Rich Filter’s name.

You can also click on the Configure option in the menu at the right of each rich filter.

Copy (duplicate) a Rich Filter

You need the Create Rich Filters permission in order to perform this operation.

Click on the Copy option in the menu at the right of each rich filter.

Insert the name of the new rich filter and click on the Create button. A new rich filter identical with the first one but with the name you have inserted is created.

Delete a Rich Filter

Only the rich filter's administrators and JIRA Administrators can perform this operation.

Click on the Delete option in the menu at the right of each rich filter.
