It may happen that there are lots of JIRA issues that match the filter you set in order to display them as a table. In that case retrieving and displaying all issues can take a long time and it doesn't offer a good end-user experience.
A new feature in the Bridge To JIRA plugin allows you to paginate the rendered table by just giving two simple arguments to the [btj-table]] short-code:
- rowsperpage specifies a maximum of number of lines that a table can have in a single page;
- id specifies an arbitrary unique id for this table ideally into the whole WordPress blog.
Both these arguments are mandatory.
If the whole table has more lines than rowsperpage a familiar page index will appear under the table allowing one to quickly go to the needed page.
As before let's show all the issues in a particular project named DBTJ in our mock JIRA instance and let's only have 2 per page.
[[btj-table fields="summary,assignee,status" rowsperpage=2 id="demonstrate-pagination"]project = DBTJ[/btj-table]
The table below is live and contains data coming directly from our JIRA instance.
