We just launched a new feature and could not be more excited! Cloud Workflows now supports JQL queries in the Jira Expression tester and it is super easy to use:

Just add your own favourite query

Just click the ‘Open JQL Query Editor’ button and enter a JQL query of your choice and you are done. The result of your JQL query is available to your Jira Expression as a list of issues called issues.

Alright, so why is this exciting and what can you do with it? We already wrote about the power of Jira Expressions when aggregating data and now you can tap into that power straight from the Jira UI. But aggregating data is not everything you can do with the combination of JQL and Jira Expressions. You can just as easily selectively extract data from a set of issues. Want to prepare a list of issue keys and their respective summaries in a sprint for your release Notes? This now becomes really easy to do:

JQL Query:
project = ‘Cloud Workflows’ AND sprint = ‘Sprint 12’
Jira Expression:
issues.map(i => i.key + " " + i.summary )

And it looks pretty, too:

Results now come with prettified JSON

Neat, eh? We are sure you will have as much fun with this new feature as we are having and we cannot wait to get your feedback! So go ahead and give it a try today!
