Is it possible using Jira JQL filters?

Thanks in Advance.

Hi folks 

You might like to look at my answer on which is looking at the rolling last 3 work days. For an explanation of the logic I used there. 

Building on the JQL provided by @Christos Moysiadis 

(updated < -3d AND updated > startofWeek(-1d)) OR (updated < -5d and updated  < startofweek(-1d))

Hope this is still useful to someone out there.



Hi @Phill Fox my Scenario changed and Now I want to find the tickets which are not updated for the last 2 days and Exclude the weekends.


Could you please help me in this regard.

Hi @Madhu Reddy 

I covered that use case in this answer  although this was for 3 days not 2.  Please review that for the description of the logic but the based additional criteria for time is 

(updated <-2d AND > startofweek()) OR (updated < -4d AND updated > startofWeek(-2d) AND updated < startofweek())


Hi @Madhu Mullangi ,

yes i am sure its possible.try to run this jql: 

  • updated >= startOfWeek(2d) and updated <= endOfWeek(-1d) 
    • Notes: 2d means , that you increase the days by 2
    • -1d means , that you decrease the days by 1

Hope this info is helpful for you. maybe some customisations in the -/+ days will be needed ,because i dont know how your working calendar is.

Extra info:

Best regards


@Christos Moysiadis Thanks for your Response.

I am totally confused with your Answer.

I think you are not clear with my question.I want tickets which are not updated for lats 3 days[Thursday,Friday,Monday]  excluding weekends.

Today is Tuesday and my result should be tickets not updated from last Thursday  Onwards i.e. [Monday, Friday, Thursday].


Thanks in Advance.
