Need to search issue type ID but receive "Operator 'is not' does not support searching for non-empty values for field 'issuetype'."

Operator 'is not' does not support searching for non-empty values for field 'issuetype'.

Seems like a basic search that should be allowed.

The operator 'is not' is used only to validate whether it is EMPTY or not. The issue type value can never be empty in JIRA issues. You are looking to check the issue type value and hence please use != operator.

For example,  issuetype != epic

Try "not in" instead.  As in "issuetype not in (bug, feature)"
