What I'm looking for should be pretty straightforward; yet I cannot make it happen. My query:
type = Epic AND "Epic Link" != XXXXXX-XX
results in an empty list.
Variations I have tried are:
type = Epic AND "Epic Link" not in (XXXXXX-XX, YYYYYY-YY)
type = Epic AND component ~! XXX . . . where XXX is a theme component I put in to exclude certain epics
Just in case someone is about to ask the obvious question - I do have epics. A search query 'type = Epic' does give a list of epics.
The most straight-forward JQL for excluding an epic from the filter would be:
type = Epic AND key not in (<epic issue key>)
Where <epic issue key> could be, in example XYZ-258.
Note that you could easily exclude more than one epic by adding their issue keys separated by commas, ie:
type = Epic AND key not in (XYZ-258, JRASERVER-57, JSD-22)
So, there's no need to flag the Epics with a component for filtering them out, which would only be better if the epics you wanted to filter out already had that component in common, while no other epics you wanted the filter to still return belonged to that component.
Hope it helps.
