The asset navigator lets you search for and manage assets in JIRA. Create, Edit, Clone Delete assets, and printing single or multiple QR + labels are supported. Asset navigator is available on the "Assets and Inventory" top menu "Asset Navigator" link.
Asset Navigator Display Modes
It has 3 modes:
- Detail view: Assets for multiple asset types are displayed, show one asset's all attributes and additionally shows attachments and linked issues
- List view: Assets for single asset type are displayed in table list view (like excel). List all attributes of the asset type but attachments and linked issues are not displayed on the list - asset needs to be displayed separately.
- Advanced Search: Search with Lucene queries. It is not easy write but it is very powerful to query assets.
Users need "Browse Assets" asset permission to see assets on the Asset Navigator.

Search for Wildcard Text Searches
Text fields allow for wildcard searches.
The single character wildcard search looks for terms that match that with the single character replaced. For example, to search for "text" or "test" you can use the search
Multiple character wildcard searches looks for 0 or more characters. For example, to search for test, tests or tester, you can use the search:
You can also use the wildcard searches in the middle of a term.
We have two assets and their names are
- Server alpha test
- Alpha server test
- App tester beta
When we search:
|te*||Both 3 assets||add asterisk at the end|
|test*||Both 3 assets|
|"server test"||Query between double quotes|
|tes?||Only one character matches for question mark, so "tester" does not return.|
keyword: te → nothing returns
Please refer to Lucene's official document for wildcard searches.
Exact term search
When you surround text search terms with double quotes (i.ie "pandas and monkeys"), only exact matching results will be displayed.
|Search keyword||Matching attribute value|
|"pandas and monkeys"|
pandas and monkeys
pandas and MONKEYS
|Exactly must be the same. But not case sensitive|
|pandas and monkeys|
|any tokenized word will match|
pandas and monkeys
my and monkeys
|Single quote matches only portion.|
