JIRA Agile 6.7.6 Release Notes

1 July 2015

The Atlassian team announces the release of JIRA Agile 6.7.6 (note, there was no public JIRA Agile 6.7.5 release). This point release contains a number of features as well as several updates and fixes. Upgrading to this version of JIRA Agile is free to all customers with active JIRA software maintenance.


Search by Epic Link or Epic Name in JIRA (basic search)

In JIRA Agile 6.7.2, we introduced the ability to search by the Sprint field in JIRA's basic search. In this release, we've added the Epic Link and Epic Name fields as parameters for the basic search. Just navigate to the basic search, click More and add the Epic Link and/or Epic Name field.

  • Epic Link — Use this parameter to find all of the issues in an epic. This is a dropdown select box, so just pick the epics from the list.
  • Epic Name — Use this parameter to find the epic itself. This is a text based search, so you can use wildcards, boolean operators, etc, as described in Performing text searches (JIRA documentation). Note, the Epic Name field is used to specify a short name for the epic, which is displayed on the epic's label.
