The issue list

Overview

The issue list provides a way to look at the opened issues for a project.

Issuelist overview

Applying and saving filters

The issue list displays open issues by default.
Standard and custom fields can be used to build a custom query. Once the filters are set, click on to refresh the issue list. Click on to clear the filters.

Applied filters

It is possible to select multiple values at once for a specified field by pressing the button. This will convert the drop-down menu in a selection list. In order to add to the selection list, use the ctrl key on your keyboard.

Custom queries

Custom queries can be saved by clicking on .
A form lets you give it a name and select the columns that you want to be displayed on the issue list for this query (both standard and custom fields can be displayed). Checking the public attribute will make the query visible to everyone, otherwise only you will see the query.

Extended new custom query

Once saved, the query is listed in the sidebar.

Shortcut menu

A context menu pops up when right clicking (ALT + Left click for Opera users) on an issue of the issue list.
This menu offers several shortcuts to quickly edit, reprioritize, reassign, copy, move or delete the issue.

Note that you have to right-click outside of the issue link, otherwise the browser's default context menu is displayed.

Bulk editing issues

From the issue list, you can bulk edit/move/delete issues by selecting multiple issues and then right-click on the selection.
Issue can be selected either by using the checkboxes or by clicking on the rows with Control or Shift key pressed.
You can also use the little tick at the upper-left corner of the list to select/unselect all the issues.

Sidebar

Sidebar overview
The contextual sidebar on the right of the issue list provides links to several different things:
  • a quicklink to the default issuelist without any other filters applied (thus only open issues), which is useful when you are looking at a custom query and want to get back to the default issue list
  • a link to the issue summary, which is a report of all the issues at a project-level (in contrast to the version overview which provides an overview at version-level)
  • a link to the change log, which provides a project-level overview of all closed and targeted issues, sorted per target-versions
  • links to several levels of custom queries:
    • global (cross-project) queries
      • public queries
      • private queries
    • current-project's queries
      • public queries
      • private queries
  • depending on the project settings it also shows a planning section with links to:
