We were wondering if there is a way where no matter what JIRA language an user has chosen the JQL will still pass when written in English? We are currently facing that kind of issue - more precisely with the fields ‘Flagged’ and ‘Epic Status’. For example, an user has chosen German for primary language. Depending on the additional languages fields in System configurations there are different cases about finding the Flagged issues.
Case 1: ‘Flagged = Hindernis’
Case 2: ‘Gekennzeichnet= Hindernis’
Same is the situation with the ‘Epic Status’ field. For example, germans use it as ‘Epic Status’ = Fertig.
We tried to get the customFieldId using REST but we did not find any proper solution.
So our question is - can all the languages’ jqls pass in English no matter what the default or indexing language is set to?
