How to get a list of comments, commits, changelogs, versions with JQL


You want to get a list of entities other than isuses with JQL


Jira Query Language only supports getting a list of issues. You can specify the criteria that match various parts of issues, e.g., comments, but you’ll always get a list of issues back.

The resulting list of issues is still useful as it narrows down your search. You can save your search as a filter and use it everywhere else in Jira.

You need to use other tools to further adjust your report. You may consider:

  • Jira dashboard gadgets for aggregations

  • export of the JQL search results and further analysis in Excel

  • other Marketplace apps

You can only get a list of Jira issues when you are only using JQL
