Overview

Power Admin's Locations feature allows you to understand precisely how and where configuration elements are used in other elements in Jira. You can analyze the details of the relations between two configuration elements efficiently. For example, you can understand exactly how a custom field is used in a workflow's transition. It might be used in a post function, and Power Admin will show you the transition and exact post-function.

You can review locations for:

  • custom field used in a workflow, filter, dashboard or agile board

  • screen used in a workflow

  • app used in a workflow, filter or agile board

  • issue type used in a filter or agile board

  • status used in a workflow, filter or agile board

  • priority used in a workflow, agile board or filter

  • resolution used in a workflow, agile board or filter

Locations where an issue type is used in a filter and sub-filter.
