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.
