Search Request View

A Search Request View allows you to render a custom representation of a search result. Rendering a custom XML format is a common example.

After an add-on declaring a Search Request View module is installed, a new entry will show up in the Export menu on the Issue Navigator page. Clicking the entry will redirect to the URL that is provided by your add-on, passing in the issue keys, pagination information and the signed parameters that allow you to verify the validity of the request.

To declare a Search Request View, you must mainly provide the URL that will handle the HTTP GET request. This URL is relative to the base url of the descriptor.

Your service will be invoked with these parameters:

  • issues: A comma-separated list of issue keys
  • link: A link back to the JIRA Issue Navigator where the action was invoked
  • startIssue: The index of the first passed issue key in the list of all issues
  • endIssue: The index of the last passed issue key in the list of all issues
  • totalIssues: The number of issues in the entire search result

Example

{
  "modules": {
    "jiraSearchRequestViews": [
      {
        "url": "/search-request.csv",
        "weight": 100,
        "description": {
          "value": "My search view description"
        },
        "name": {
          "value": "My Search View"
        },
        "key": "my-search-view"
      }
    ]
  }
}

Properties

key

Type
string
Required
Yes
Description

A key to identify this module.

This key must be unique relative to the add on, with the exception of Confluence macros: Their keys need to be globally unique.

Keys must only contain alphanumeric characters and dashes.

The key is used to generate the url to your add-on's module. The url is generated as a combination of your add-on key and module key. For example, an add-on which looks like:

{
    "key": "my-addon",
    "modules": {
        "configurePage": {
            "key": "configure-me",
        }
    }
}

Will have a configuration page module with a URL of /plugins/servlet/ac/my-addon/configure-me.
