How can I filter by inBacklog/notInBacklog using JIra query from Google sheets


I am using the Jira query from google sheets as part of my project management dashboard. It's working well except that it pulls in all of the Jira issues, regardless of whether they are in the Backlog or not. FYI I am using next-gen in Jira

Is there a column or status or similar I can filter on the see which issues are in Backlog and which are not.

Hi @philipp_matuschka

I found this JQL

issuetype != Epic AND resolution = Unresolved AND  (Sprint = EMPTY OR Sprint not in (openSprints(), futureSprints()))


Which should help you filter issues in the backlog (or not in the backlog)



Thanks for the suggestion. However, seems like a roundabout way and as I don't use sprints, do you think it will work? Is there not just a column to query which tells me whether it is or is not in the Backlog. After all Jira itself must somehow know which issues are in the backlog and which are not.
