How-to search for issues related to metadata values

Creating, editing metadata is only one aspect of Metadata for Jira, you can also search for (non hidden) metadata.

You can use Jira's search (JQL) to find the following elements.

ElementJQL
Projectproject in projectsMetadata("key", "value")
Componentxxx in versionsMetadata("key", "value")
Versionxxx in versionsMetadata("key", "value")
Userxxx in usersMetadata("key", "value")
Groupxxx in groupsMetadata("key", "value")

Let's imagine you have the following metadata for a version.

Now you want to search for issues that have been fixed in a hotfix version (e.g. 1.0.14).

Step-by-step guide

  1. Select the 'Issues' > 'Search Issues' option from the Issues menu.
  2. Switch to the advanced search mode by clicking on Advanced.
  3. Insert the following JQL

 The search will then show you all operations that have been resolved for a hotfix version (e.g. 1.0.14).
