An issue can be an event, task, assignment or a bug.

After you have installed JIRA Client, created a connection and run a query (double-clicking a query name or using, for example, the Create Query dialog), issues appear in the Issues table. On picture below you can see main issue elements in JIRA Client user interface.

Issue properties in JIRA Client are very much similar to those in JIRA. Please refer to JIRA issue description for in-depth explanation if required.
