Atlassian Jira

Jira tracks issues and projects.

Setup issue filters

Create two filters for each project to track tasks you’re actively and passively involved with.

GravDept: Project Name: Open

Track tasks assigned to you and unresolved:

assignee = currentUser() AND resolution = Unresolved AND project = "Something" ORDER BY id ASC

GravDept: Project Name: Watching

Track tasks not assigned to you and unresolved, but that you’re watching:

assignee != currentUser() AND watcher = currentUser() AND resolution = Unresolved AND project = "Something" ORDER BY id ASC

Reference

Setup dashboards

Dashboards give an overview of everything important to you. I suggest setting up a default dashboard, and a custom dashboard for each project.

Default

Add these gadgets:

  • Projects
  • Activity Stream

Project: Project Name

Add these gadgets:

  • Filters Results (GravDept: Project Name: Open)
  • Filters Results (GravDept: Project Name: Watching)

Note: Jira is stupid because gadget search doesn’t work. Click “Load all gadgets” first, then search for the “Filter Results” gadget.
