Structure not only displays a hierarchy of items, it also allows you to search items based on their relative positions in the hierarchy. The language used to express such queries is called Structured JQL or S-JQL (where JQL stands for Jira Query Language).
Structured JQL queries are available in these places:
- inside a
structure()JQL function — this allows you to search for issues in a structure on the Issue Navigator page — see structure() JQL function
- in the Search Area on the Structure Widget — see Search
- in the S-JQL Filter generator
- in the workflow validator or condition — see Workflow Integration
Get Started with S-JQL
We recommend starting with the S-JQL Cookbook, which contains a number of common examples that can be used as is or modified to meet your specific needs.
For a comprehensive description of the language and
structure() JQL function, consult the S-JQL Reference.
