Compatible applications

If you're looking for compatible JIRA applications, look no further:

Searching through versions with a wildcard

Searching through version fields with a wildcard was one of the most demanded features suggested by our users, and today we’re making it happen. Whether it’s 9, 9.1, or any other derivative you’re looking for, you can now find it with a simple query that uses the ~ operator and an asterisk to indicate the location of unknown characters (regardless of how many there are).

To illustrate this with an example, if you’d like to find all issues within the 9.x line, your search query would look like this: fixVersion ~ “9.*”. Go ahead, try it out, and bring some beauty to your queries! Learn more

Small improvements to make your day

  • Delimiters for CSV
    You can choose one of the four most commonly used delimiters when exporting your issues to CSV. These are comma, semicolon, vertical bar, and caret (this one: ^). If you’d like to try it out, just search for some issues in JIRA, and then hit Export > CSV in the top-right corner. Learn more

  • Disabling empty JQL queries
    When you use a filter with an empty JQL query, it will retrieve all possible issues, which can have a serious impact on performance if you throw a couple of these on your boards and gadgets. To avoid that, we’ve added a global setting that lets you decide how an empty JQL query behaves: either returning all issues (like it is now), or no results at all. Learn more

  • IPv6 for MySQL databases
    You can now connect JIRA to your MySQL database using an IPv6 address. Learn more
