User wants to return issues with security level and this is not possible using the Basic mode from issue navigator


  • Go to the issue navigator by clicking on Issues > Search for issues from the Top Bar
  • Click on the Advanced button next to the search bar:
  • Run the JQL query below to search for issues which Security Level was set to "xxxxx":

     Level = "xxxxx"

    (info) Replace "xxxxx" with the appropriate Issue Security Level

  • For example:
    • Let's assume that there is an issue security scheme associated to a project, with levels such as "Level A"
    • Let's assume that one Jira issue in this project has its security level set to "Level A"
    • To find this issue from the search page, used the JQL query below:

       Level = "Level A"

Note that issue tickets with security levels that the current user does not have access to, will not be shown.

  • If you want to search for issues which the Security Level is not set, run the JQL query below:

    Level is EMPTY
