Filter Stream

This is a reference for the filters available in Filter Stream.

Filter Stream filters the Stream's issues and displays them.

Filter Streams are added from the Add Filter Stream menu in the Stream menu. Or, to create a top-level stream, add it from the Add Filter Stream top-level menu. It is also possible to apply a Filter temporarily.

The filters available in the Filter Stream are pretty much the same as in the Stream, but note that some of them are slightly different.

Pull requests where the user/team has requested a review

Specifying multiple queries of the same type is an OR condition. For example, review-requested:defunkt review-requested:jlord is pull requests where defunkt or jlord is the review request.

Repository and Organization



Repository issues


Organization issues


User issues

Specifying multiple queries of the same type is an OR condition. For example, repo:nodejs/node repo:electron/electron is issues of nodejs/node or electron/electron.

Label, milestone, etc


label:bug, label:bug-%

Labeled issues % matches any string

milestone:v1.0.0, milestone:v2.0.%

Milestone issues % matches any string

title:test, title:%test%

Issue with specified title % matches any string


Issue number

Labels can also specify dynamic dates as follows.

FilterDescription (assuming today is 2022-08-16)


@current_date is replaced by the current date. In other words, label:release_2022%08%16 is executed as a filter.


The @prev_date is replaced by yesterday's date. In other words, label:release_2022%08%15 is executed as a filter.


The @next_date is replaced by tomorrow's date. In other words, label:release_2022%08%17 is executed as a filter.

label:release_@current_date+1, label:release_@current_date-1

Following @current_date with +1 or -1 replaces the date relative to the current date. So the filter will run label:release_2022%08%17 or label:release_2022%08%15.

Specifying multiple queries of the same type is an OR condition. For example, milestone:v1.0.0.0 milestone:v2.0.0 is issues with a v1.0.0 or v2.0.0.0 milestone. However, this is an AND condition for labels.

A label or milestone containing spaces should be enclosed in double quotation marks, such as label: "hello world".
