Shouldnt be the output of this JQL be 0 Tasks?

This JQL gives me around 350 issues.


Sprint in closedSprints() AND Sprint not in futureSprints() AND Sprint is not EMPTY AND StatusCategory in  ("To Do", "In Progress")


I have gone through the documentation of what happens when we complete an sprint. And my above JQL says to give me only those issues:-


  • Which are in CLOSED Sprints, and
  • Which have either in TODO or INPROGRESS status-category, and
  • Which are also NOT planned for any FUTURE Sprints, and
  • Which are also not there in my BackLog

So, this means, i have around 350 Open issues which are not in my Backlog or any futureSprints.
