The Data source pane contains the Data source setting, which determines which JIRA issues will be available to the report. There are five available data source types:
Select a project
This data source loads all issues available from the specified project. All JIRA project types (Business, Software and Service Desk) are supported.
Select a board
This data source loads all issues available from the specified board. JIRA Software board types (Scrum and Kanban) are supported.
Select a filter
This data source loads all issues returned by the JQL query as currently defined by the specified filter.
Due to limitations of the JIRA API, only filters that you own or have added to favourites will be available in the filter selection menu. To select a filter that doesn't show up in the list, you must first locate the filter via Issues > Manage Filters and then add the filter to your favourites.
Enter a JQL query
This data source loads all issues returned by the specified JQL query.
This data source simply includes all issues that the viewing user has permission to browse.
This option should be used sparingly unless you have a small JIRA deployment (less than a few thousand issues). On larger JIRA deployments, reports configured with All issues will be slow to load and once loaded may cause decreased browser responsiveness or lock up (dependent on available system resources).
