Check if a specific option in a checkbox was checked

Hi There

I have a checkbox named "Delivery Span" with multiple options (FY23: Q3, FY23: Q4, FY24: Q1)

The user is to select the expected time span of an initiative, thus one, two or all three checkbox options can be selected.

As an example, I want to list (JQL) all initiatives that has "FY23: Q4" checked, regardless of the status of any other checked options.

"Delivery Span" = "FY23: Q4", does not work

"Delivery Span" ~ "FY23: Q4", does not work

"Delivery Span" is not Empty, works but it is not what I need.

I cannot use scripts, nor any add-ons since I am using an enterprise cloud Jira application without admin rights.

Any help will be greatly appreciated 

Regards

Marius

Hi Marius

 

Can you please give more information on 'does not work' or 'is not what you need' - what results do you actually get for each of the examples:

"Delivery Span" = "FY23: Q4", does not work

"Delivery Span" ~ "FY23: Q4", does not work

"Delivery Span" is not Empty, works but it is not what I need.

We can then try and help you

 

Thanks

Morning Danielle

I manage to sort out the issue but let me try and provide better context.

Thanks for replying!

Setup

  1. Epic Name = "Program"
  2. Checkbox in issuetype "Program" = "Delivery Span" or cf[10781]
  3. "Delivery Span" options "FY23: Q3, FY23: Q4, FY24: Q1.......++"
  4. Multiple options can be checked in "Delivery Span"

Objective (Single example)

  1. List all issues of issuetype "Program" where "Delivery Span" includes "FY23: Q4", but might or might not have more than one checkbox option selected.

Applied Syntax

  1. "Delivery Span" = "FY23: Q4", does not work
  2. "Delivery Span" ~ "FY23: Q4", does not work
  3. "Delivery Span" is not Empty, works but it is not what I need.

Solution

"Delivery Span[Checkboxes]" = FY23Q4

"Delivery Span" = FY23Q4

Problem

IO error (Idiot Operator):-). The quick controller in the dashboard listed the options using a : & a space whereas the checkbox did not. aka, "FY23: Q4" vs FY23Q4

Thank you for letting me know!
