Contextual Linking for Enhanced Issue Visualization
Issue Matrix allows users to visualize issues which are not directly linked, but share a common context. An invaluable feature for JIRA and Service desk users which allows issues to be contextually linked based on a system (e.g. reporter) or custom (e.g. labels) value field. The advanced JQL syntax enables users to filter a list of related, yet not directly linked issues based on their system or custom fields value, thus allowing the comparison of issue fields with the values stored in the currently viewed issue.
With Issue Matrix additional information and fields about each sub-task is available without the need for opening it individually. Sub-tasks can be broken down by type and add panel names that are user-friendly and easy-to-configure, thus helping individual teams to better visualize the tasks they are responsible for.
It is very easy to configure the Issue Matrix in Jira’s administration! The Issue Matrix is implemented as a Custom Field – create a Custom Field of the Issue Matrix type, apply how you would like this field to be displayed, and then set the appropriate configuration. All sub-tasks defined in your system are available to use, along with most columns available for display throughout Jira.
Advanced JQL Contextual Linking
Issue Matrix advanced contextual linking provides an extension to the JQL syntax which can be used to configure what to be displayed by an issue matrix custom field. The extension allows comparing issue fields with the values stored in the currently viewed issue. For example, you can easily identify all issues in a given project that only share a common value, such as:
- System field examples: Reporter, Assignee, Component, Fix version, Status etc.
- Custom field examples: Customer request type, Multi-group picker, Text field etc.
This extension can be used in the Custom JQL mode and in the JQL filter configuration option in the Sub-Tasks, Issue Links and Epic modes.
