Jama Connect User Guide

Filter the stream

Filters let you see only comments that matter to you. When you create a filter it remains active as long as the session is active. If you want to reuse a filter, you can save it.


You can create custom filters at an item level to filter comments or activities in the stream.

  1. Open a stream window. Select the Filter comments field.

  2. Enter one of the following to create a filter:

    • # to bring up a menu of tags.

    • @ to bring up a menu of users.

    • ! to bring up a menu of actions.

    • Enter any text to bring up frequently used names for people, groups, projects or other content types. You can also create a new keyword filter.

  3. Select an option from one of the menus or press Enter if you entered a new keyword.

  4. Optionally, select the Quick filters menu to filter by actions. These filters are additive so you can filter on multiple actions.

  5. The filters you choose appears below the comment field. You can delete them with the x. The stream is refreshed with each filter you add or delete.

  6. To save a filter, select the star button and enter a name for the filter, then select Save.



You can share your filter with another Jama Connect user by copying the url of your filtered results and sending it to another user through email. You can also bookmark this filter in your browser to view later. 

You can select people, projects, items, or other boldfaced references within a comment to set a quick filter. These filters aren't additive.
