JQL is Jira's SQL language. It is somewhat baffling as a noob, so this will mostly be a list of resources and common queries I use.


See all issues touched/updated by a user[3]

An update in this case includes creating an issue, updating any of the issue's fields, creating or deleting a comment, or editing a comment (only the last edit).[4]

issueKey IN updatedBy("username")

Get all related tasks and subtasks of an issue or epic[5]

parent = EPIC-123 OR key in linkedIssues("EPIC-123")
