Important Notes :

    JQL & Filters
      • Always use robust and dynamic queries to avoid updating the filters frequently, examples
        • Use currentUser(), Group instead of individual user
        • currentLogin(), consider the user start session date and has no parameter 
        • Use category, standardIssueTypes(), subtaskIssueTypes(), resolution instead of status UnResolved = is empty in resolution 
      • Try to use projects in side query to avoid performance bottlenecks
      • In filter email subscriptions, users will receive emails as per their project roles ,group membership or issue security schemes.
      • Page size configuration affect only the issue navigation not dashboard filters 
      • You need the Create Shared Object global permission to configure sharing for a filter
      • You need the Create Manage Subscription global permission to subscribe a user group for a filter, you will be able to see only the groups you are memberOf()

                • Resolution bulk operation can be performed with transition issues not with edit issues
                • When issues are moved from one project to another.
                    • New project key will be assigned to issue
                    • Jira will  keep the old key record for issues searching
                  • Bulk operation have same rules as single issue, for example if user have not permission to transition an issue or edit issue, in bulk operation user cannot perform the operation
                  • If a user selects multiple issues and any of the issues have any restrictions , the user will not be able to perform the whole bulk operations . Un select that issue to continue with bulk operation
                      Import issues using CSV
                        • CSV files setup
                          • All fields are separated by commas
                          • The header row should avoid containing any punctuation
                          • The header row must contain a column for 'Summary' data and it should be mapped with summary during import.
                          • Use the quotes for multiple lines
                          • Don’t omit any commas for any empty values as per the headers
                          • Dates should be formatted as java simple date
                          • CSV import configurations can be saved for any future importing
                          • Issues can be imported in multiple projects., for that purpose add two columns project name and key and it must contain the values
                          • For more details visit:
                          • Jira server and software have the same mechanism of the csv import except one difference. Jira cloud enforce the status field mapping but jira server doesn't
