JQL for all stories without Story Points

I want to get an overview of all the stories in the backlog that has not yet been estimated with Story Points, so I'm looking for help creating a query that will do just that.

In another thread it was suggested to use "Story points" is empty, but that doesn't work for me...

Funnily, I can filter all the estimated stories with query: "Story Points" > 0, but it doesn't work to reverse it with "Story Points" < 1 to see all the unestimated stories.

Hi @Bjarke Brint

"Story Points" is empty should work, it does for me.

Do you get an error or just a wrong result? Could you please give us more information?

Hi, thanks for getting back to me. 

As you can see in the attachmeent it doesn't really work. Both issues with SPs and without SPs show up:

Hello @Bjarke Brint 

As suggested by @Thomas Schlegel  below JQL should fetch all the unestimated stories (story points field should be mapped to the project context in the custom field configuration)

"Story Points" is empty

should work, if it's not working then I suggest you to do a reindex of project or the instance and check the results again

Tried to re-index the project, still mot working... :/

OK, this looks weird:

In the backlog the Story Points appear if they are assigned as shown in the attachment above reply to @Thomas Schlegel.

But in the detail view the SPs show up only in the Estimate field, and its says "None" in the Story Points field. (1st attachment)

But then, if I open the issue in another tab it shows up in the Story Points field. (2nd attachment)

I'm a bit lost here, I must admit.
