JQL: How to get day from date?

Hi,

Is there a way I can get day from date in JQL? I need something like DAY (<date>) or DATEPART (day, <date>) in T-SQL.

JQL is for finding issues, not working with the results.  All you really get from a JQL search is a list of issues. 

You then push that through some reporting (the issue navigator, reports, gadgets etc), and the reporting is what determines the output. 

So, you'd need to do that in the report, not JQL.  So the next question is "where do you want to see this data?"

(Although, there's a 95% chance that the answer is going to be "you need a scripted field", I should ask just in case it's not)

Hi, Nic, Thank you for your reply. I know that JQL queries return issues as results. I'd like to use day number in query to get a list of issues which were for instance created on a certain day, regardless of month or year. Or updated, or something. I'm not sure if I managed to explain but I do hope it makes sense.

Right, you'll need something that can extract that. It's a JQL function or a scripted field to pull that out so you can search on it.

Just to make sure - you mean custom dev, right?

Yes.

Aha, I see. Thanks.

Found this post when having the same issue.  The root problem of comparison between dueDate and resolutionDate/resolved is that dueDate is a date and resolutionDate is a dateTime. It's a bit hackish, but we overcame it with the following JQL (ScriptRunner required).

duedate is not EMPTY AND (issueFunction in dateCompare("assignee in membersOf('myTeam')", "resolved < dueDate + 1439m"))

The downside of this approach is that you lose track of issues that were closed in the 23:59:00 minute, and there is no s <seconds> datepart available in JQL.
