Search Issues Using JQL


The Search Issues Using JQL activity uses the Jira API to query for issues (Issue) using a JQL query (JQL).

This activity returns an array of issues (Issues) that can be used in subsequent activities such as Update Issue.

How it works

The following steps and message sequence diagram is an example of how the activity works from design time (i.e., the activity dependencies and input/output properties) to run time.

  1. Complete the Setup steps.
  2. Add the Jira Scope activity to your project.
  3. Add the Search Issues Using JQL activity inside the Jira Scope activity.
  4. Create and enter a String and a JQL variable for the Input properties.
  5. Create and enter an Issue[] and an Issues variable for the Output properties.


  • Continue On Error - This field only supports Boolean values (True, False). The default value in this field is False. As a result, if this field is blank and an error is thrown, the execution of the project stops. If the value is set to True, the execution of the project continues regardless of any error.
  • DisplayName - The display name of the activity. This field supports only strings or String variables.
  • JQL - The JQL search string. This field supports only strings or String variables.
  • Private - If selected, the values of variables and arguments are no longer logged at Verbose level.
  • Max Results - If selected, email notifications will be sent to all watchers after the update is complete. Enter an Int32 or Int32 variable. Jira API on-cloud has a limit of 100 results.
  • Issues - A list of issues found by the JQL query. Enter an Issue[] or a Issue[] variable.
