Priorities and their usage

Power Admin for Jira allows you to find any priority in your configuration and get a full report about its dependent priority schemes, workflows, agile boards, and filters. You can view where and understand how each priority is used.

Power Admin also shows the projects where the priority is part of the project configuration and all the issues with that priority.

A priority is part of a project configuration if its dependent priority schemes and workflows are associated with projects. The CONFIGURED IN PROJECTS lozenge shows the projects associated with the dependent priority schemes and workflows.

Find priorities

To find a priority:

  1. On Power Admin's landing page, select Priority from the drop-down, type a name or id, and start your search.

  2. On the Search results page, click the name of a priority. You can filter further the priorities by usage in projects (use the Projects filter on the Search page).

  3. Then, the priority’s profile page appears.

Search results

The page with search results shows the following information for each Priority:

  • Name and id of the Priority - You can search for a priority by its name or id.

  • Projects - shows the count of the projects where the priority is part of the project configuration of its dependent priority schemes and workflows. When you click on the project count lozenge, you will see a list of all the projects.

  • Issues - count of all the issues with that priority.

Priority's profile page

Using the profile page, you could view all the details about a priority and its usage.

How does Power Admin track a priority’s usage?

Power Admin finds all projects where the Priority is present in the project configuration. The usage information also includes the issues that have this Priority.

Power Admin collects all the priority schemes, workflows, agile boards, and filters that use the Priority. We go through the JQL entries of agile boards and filters and look for references to the Priority.
