Advanced searching - development fields reference

If you've linked your development tools to Jira, you can use even more parameters when performing a search. Adding development information to your JQL queries gives you more visibility of your development tools in Jira. So, you'll make better-informed decisions on your development and work, build a better, more reliable release pipeline, and deliver higher quality releases to your happy customers.

JQL is made up of clauses. In a clause, a field is followed by an operator. The operator is followed by one or more values or functions. The operator compares the value of the field on the left side with one or more values or functions on the right side. So, only valid results are retrieved by the clause. But you can't compare two fields in JQL.

To use development fields in your JQL queries, you can enter something like this when doing an advanced search:

fixVersion = 7.8.0 AND development[pullrequests].open > 0

This query will return all issues with the fix version 7.8.0 and open pull requests linked to them.

And what if you want to know how many builds are failing in your project? Try this query:

project = ABC AND development[builds].failing > 0

When using development fields for advanced search, you may see an error stating that the field doesn't exist or you don't have permission to view it. Learn more about this issue and how to resolve it in our knowledge base article.

Now, check the following development fields that can be used in JQL queries.
