The Rich Filter Results gadget displays a list of issues in a table. It is analogous to Jira’s built-in Filter Results gadget, but it is based on a rich filter instead of a Jira saved search and thus adds several new features:
- the content displayed can be further filtered using Rich Filter Controller gadgets;
- the gadget itself can further refine the results by applying a gadget-specific JQL that we call working query;
- the gadget can display multiple views of the rich filter (which can include computed columns, color highlighting, etc);
- the gadget can display all the issues (the default behavior) or one or multiple queues; queues are custom lists of issues, configured in the rich filter;
- the displayed issues can be updated directly from the dashboard using the Dashboard Issue Actions;
- the issues can be exported to Excel;
- the issues can be modified in bulk;
- the gadget’s title can be customized.
Example 1: gadget configured to display the issues using three views:
Example 2: gadget configured to display four queues (the selected queue – Waiting for support – uses two views to display issues):

Also, when the gadget is in display mode, you can navigate directly to the rich filter of the gadget using the Rich Filter option in the menu at the top right of the gadget.
The working query is a JQL query that is combined with the base filter of the rich filter before searching for issues. The working query is optional: if left empty, only the base base filter and the quick filters affect the issues displayed.
The working query is allowed to contain an
