How can I use the release date of a version in JQL?

Hey friends,


I'm trying to construct a query that will provide a list of issues that were created for a certain version up to three months after it has been released.

I accessed the relevant project, and under 'Versions' I found the list of released and unreleased versions, and saw that they had a column of 'Release date'. Great!

I went over to the advanced search and have tried to use it, and couldn't for the life of me find a way to reach that field.

Essentially, this is what I'm building:

issuetype = Bug AND project = <project> AND affectedVersion = <product version> AND "Bug source[Dropdown]" = Customer AND createdDate <=  ??

Just to make it clear, if I remove the createdDate part, I get all of the bugs that were created for this version. 

Ideally, I'd like to add something like "createdDate <= releaseDate(<version> + 3M)"

Any ideas?

Unfortunately the version release date is not a field that can be used within a JQL. The reason for this is the release date is not stored for every issue. So if you want to make your current JQL work you would have to use a static release date. The other option would be to create a custom date field and every time you make a release populate the actual date into that field. Then you could use your custom release date. Of course the downside of this is that either you would have to go back and populate the release date for all the storage issues or just live with this working going forward.

Fair enough.

Then if I go ahead and manually populate the release date in the query, is there a function that I can use to get only three months after that date?

To clarify, let's assume that the version release date was November 1st, 2020.

Can I structure something like the below?

createdDate <=  "2020-11-01" + 3M

Why not simply…

createddated <= 2021-02-01 and createddate >= 2020-11-01

Honestly, because I'm going to repeat this for a large number of versions and the less I manually type the dates, the sooner I finish this day.

Alright, I'm going to give it a go. Thanks!

hi @Eitan 

I don't see any native solution.

One way to cover your need would be to implement this JQL function with ScriptRunner :
