JQL search for single component only

Let's say I have many components: A, B, C, X... and so on.

Let's say I have issues with these components assigned:

  • Issue A
  • Issue A + B
  • Issue A + C
  • Issue A + X
  • .. and so on

How can I write query that selects "Issue A" only, if I may not know how many combinations A can have?

Hi Anton,

yes you can:

component = A and component != B

 

 

Thanks Peter, but what if I have many components other's than A? Hardcoding all of them in the query and updating them each time new combination gets added is not worth it.

You have to hardcode something, otherwise it can't function.

If I understand correctly you want to do Component = A and Component != different Than A

This can be accomplished with either custom JQL or custom scripted field that shows you the number of components and in this case the JQL will be

Component = A and ComponentCount = 1.

Cheers,

Thanks Peter!
