Script Summary: Autosuggest for search in Jira
Jira Issue Finder
This script might be extremely useful for those of us using Jira.
The feature will add ajax autosuggest to the search box on the top right.
While typing a text search (typically a part of the issue title) the feature will suggest a (configurable) list of issues for that search.
A click on the title of a suggested issue will redirect to the issue's details screen.
The feature is fully configurable by clicking on the small calendar icon to the right of the search box. This will bring up a small window where you can configure:
- baseUrl: this is used for making the ajax calls (ie http://jira.mydomain.com)
- searchLength: number of characters needed before autosuggest is triggered (less letters = more request to server!!, so 3 to 4 is a good number)
- project: select a project in which you like the autosuggest to search (at first configuration, a list of projects is gathered through a ajax call, and then stored in the config for later fast revision)
- sortField: field on which you would like the results to be sorted
- sortOrder: ASC or DESC
- maxResults: max number of results the autosuggest should pick up (keep this number around 10 for faster response)
Chosen options are persisted in the about:config of firefox.
Note1) The baseUrl configuration is required for the ajax calls!
2) If the autosuggest does not work, you must configure the included pages for this script to work on your domain:
Right click the monkey -> Manage user scripts... -> Select 'Jira Issue Finder' -> Includes pages: "Add...".
Add the url you have configured to be your baseUrl, ie: "http://jira.domain.com/**"
