    Is it possible to select the column order: for example I would like the key to be at start immediately followed by the summary.

      I have the same question.  Is it possible to control the column order, either via the default column order in your Issue Navigator settings, or the column order for the filter or based on the order you select the columns when configuring the gadget?

    is it possible to

    a) control colum order

    b) save custom colums and reuse it in other filter user Gadgets

    same question here. I would want to have the control of the order of "columns" that would appear in my "filter search" gadget.

    Is it possible to add a parameter field into the filter result so that when we configure the gadget, we can input the parameter?

    We have some long summaries and when showing that field it can stretch over 10 lines. It would be nice to have an option to only show x number of lines per issue.

    Next to the "1-4 of 4" there used to be a link to open the filter in a new tab/window and it would show all. This is missing now, very useful when there are tens of issues and trying to sort.

    There's a typo in your comment. In the sentence, "The Gadget Directory will appear. Locate the Watched Issues gadget and click the Add it Now button. Then click the Finished button at the bottom of the Gadget Directory." , you should correct "Watched Issues" to "Filter Results"

    We just upgraded from JIRA 4.0.2 to 5.2 and when now do a filter gadget from confluence we get a pop asking us to login and give the gadget access to our account.  We hit the login and approve button.  It goes away just for the instance.  How can we stop this from coming up on every filter gadget we attempt..  This is locking up some pc's when the have alot of filter's to display on one page..

      Did you ever find a workaround for this?

    The paging to the first and last result list/site would be very useful!!!

    For example: <<first <previous 1|2|3|4 next> last>>

    Or the paging via select-list.

    I have created a dashboard with the filter results gadget and have shared it with my team. The problem is, none of the filters are working for them. It seems that I have to share each filter with them in order for the dashboard to show results properly. Is this the only way to do this? This won't be sustainable as we grow our audience looking at this dashboard...

    Is there a way to increase the maximum Number of Results from 50 to a larger number?

    It would be great if there were an option to remove "Filter Results:" text from the gadget's title. It would make the title more readable at a glance and at least in our use the text isn't necessary information.

    Is it possible to modify the maximum number of results to be 100 instead of 50? Thanks!

    Is there a way to re-size the columns? I have two different filters, both with the same columns, but the sizes for the same columns between the two gadgets are different. I assume this is because the columns are auto-sized based on the information in the column itself, but I'd like to confirm if there's any way to change this.

    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,
