Which releases would those be?
I think “issue from N most recent releases” (based on release date/first seen) would suffice in our case. Or even better, an “issues from the releases published in recent X days” filter which we can better reason with.
The N biggest version numbers?
A filter on version number will do the job too, since the buildNumber for android release should always increase. However, its definition can be platform-dependent (e.g. non-Android projects may not have an order-able version number).
Do you not have internal/daily builds in there that you’d like to exclude?
We have “staging” and “production” environments, but we still get many alerts from the users in production environment who are using old app versions and we are not interested in.
Also you can restrict alerts to issues older/newer than a certain time - would that workaround work?
That would be an improvement. However, a significant part of the issues we are receiving and we trying to filter out are "New issue"s from the older versions which have become irrelevant in our development and we have no plan for their maintenance.
