How To Edit Quick Filters In Jira

In this article, we will explore the process of editing quick filters in JIRA. These filters play a vital role in JIRA by enabling users to easily sift through vast amounts of information. They enable the creation of customized views on the dashboard, ultimately enhancing efficiency and saving time.

Step 1: Accessing Quick Filters

The first step to editing a Quick Filter is locating it. Start by navigating to your ‘Board’ in the upper-right corner of the JIRA interface. From there, select ‘Configure’ from the drop-down menu. You’ll be directed to the board settings page, where you can find the ‘Quick Filters’ option.

Step 2: Editing a Quick Filter

Once you’ve found the Quick Filters page, you’ll see a list of your current Quick Filters. To edit a Quick Filter, click on the ‘Edit’ button next to the filter you want to change. This will open the Edit Quick Filter screen where you can modify both the name and the JQL of the filter.

The JQL, or JIRA Query Language, is a flexible tool for searching for issues in JIRA. It can be as simple or as complex as needed, allowing users to specify any number of criteria in their filters. To change the JQL of a Quick Filter, simply type your new query into the ‘Query’ box.

Example: project = "My Project" AND status = "In progress" AND assignee = currentUser()

Once you’ve made your changes, click on the ‘Update’ button to save your edits. Congratulations, you’ve just edited a Quick Filter in JIRA!


Editing Quick Filters in JIRA is a simple and effective way of customizing your project view. It allows you to filter through issues quickly, improving productivity and making project management that much easier.
