Restrictions are criteria you specify that items must match to be included in filter and search results. You can use multiple restrictions to narrow the number of items in the results. For example, you can create restrictions to find issues with a specific severity level that were last modified within a specific number of days.
You can use a variety of restrictions based on field values, link information, and other attributes. You can also use restrictions based on workflow events, which can search the first or last instance of an event entered on items or all instances of the event. You can add up to 20 restrictions to a filter or search.
