Advanced Search

You can take a deep dive with JQL for a specific search.

With Issue Beacons, you can comfortably search for specific issues with JQL in a glance panel in Issue View.

To learn more about JQL, see Atlassian documentation.

Issue Beacon introduces the $current keyword to JQL.

The $current keyword represents a property value the same as the property value in the currently viewed issue.

For example, the assignee = $current query returns issues that are assigned to the same assignee as the currently viewed issue.
