JIRA is now available as three separate applications, JIRA Software, JIRA Service Desk, and JIRA Core. For more information on administering these applications, refer to the Administering JIRA Applications documentation.

Adding the Favorite Filters Gadget

The Favorite Filters gadget displays a list of all the issue filters that have currently been added by you as a 'favorite' filter.

(info) Read more about adding an issue filter as a favorite filter in the issue filters documentation.

What does it look like?

The Favorite Filters gadget should appear as follows on the dashboard:

Adding the 'Favorite Filters' gadget to your Dashboard

  1. Go to your JIRA dashboard and click 'Add Gadget'.
  2. The 'Gadget Directory' will appear. Locate the 'Favorite Filters' gadget and click the 'Add it Now' button. Then click the 'Finished' button at the bottom of the Gadget Directory.
  3. The Favorite Filters gadget will appear on your dashboard as follows, ready for you to configure:

    1. 'Show issue counts' — select whether, for each of your favorite filters, you wish to display the number of issues that match the filter. Note that choosing 'Yes' may impact your dashboard's performance.
    2. 'Refresh Interval'  — select how often you want the gadget to update the displayed activity (never / every 15 minutes / every 30 minutes / every hour / every two hours).
  4. Click the 'Save' button.

To move the gadget to a different position on the dashboard, simply drag-and-drop. You can also change the look and behavior of the gadget.

The Favorite Filters gadget is added by default to the 'System Default' dashboard.

The 'Favorite Filters' gadget has replaced the 'List All Filters' portlet.

      The list of filter name is alphabetically sorted. I did this simple workaround, rename the filters to have a,b,c in them so as to sort the you want.

    I am part of multiple projects and in all projects I have roughly similar kind of filters. On an average 5 filters per project. Soon the list in this gadget starts to get overwhelming. Is there a way I can group filters (by project or just by manually grouping them) so that I can create separate dashboards and select only the ones I want to see on each one?

      I 100% agree, and I like the idea of grouping the filters. As making filters favorite is only one level of segregation, its just not enough.

    In addition to what Manu Goel is asking, I need a graphical representation of numbers shown in form of a pie chart of bar graph. I have created filters for list of issues based on due dates. (Overdue, due in 2 days, 5 days, 10 days) I want to know if there is a way to show them in a bar chart.

    I want to integrate JIRA and Confluence. I am trying to create a table on Confluence page which will contain all the issues for a project in JIRA.
    I am able to retrieve all issues from JIRA and display as table but I also want to add filter to the table so that I can view optimized data as per need using filter.

    Is there any plugin available for this or any solution to achieve this?


    Thanks in advance.
    Best Regards,
