I just had an odd occurrence on our JIRA 6.4.13 instance. I was asked why there was an issue that no JQL query would find so I had a look at it.
The search scenario that did not find it:
I opened the issue that we knew was there and quickly did a JQL query that should definitively find it based on:
That one DID find it. The odd bit is that after THAT search, the issue showed up in the ORIGINAL query again as well as a couple of others that weren't showing up based on project, assignee, and resolution. Also, a dashboard with counts of these issues based on the original search criteria did not reflect the missing issues in the counts but did after my broader query.
NOTE that the queries were working for MOST issues; just not ALL the issues.
Is there a bug in 6.4.13 or other oddness that might cause this? Why would (apparently) the "tickle" of the broader search make them appear in the more restrictive search?
