Flex Jira Tips (part II) : XML Feeds and Email Subscriptions

This post is courtesy of Peter DeHaan who writes the Flex Examples blog. He sent these out as a tip to our QA team and I thought I would share it with the community.

You can do a fancy search (for example, Flex SDK bugs in “Community” status filed by users in the past 24h):

http://bugs.adobe.com/jira/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?reset=true&&created%3Aprevious=-1d&pid=10012&status=10000&sorter/field=issuekey&sorter/order=DESC

If you want to convert that into an RSS feed, there is an “XML” link above the search result table (there is also some Excel file output and Chart view – but I’ve never really used those). The XML feed seems to be a fairly standard RSS 0.92 style. The RSS should give you titles, bug numbers, assignee, reporter, component, number of votes/attachments, etc.

Now, if you want to save that search as a filter, there is a “Save it as a filter” link in the upper-left below the navigation. You can give it a fancy name and description.

You can manage your filters by clicking the Manage button just above that “Save it as a filter” link. You can subscribe to filters by clicking the “subscribe” link next to the filter name. This page now lets you specify whether you want to email it to yourself or others, how frequently to send emails (hourly, daily, etc), as well as do you want an email if there are zero results.
