Jira Google Sheets Plugin - how to handle spaces in JQL of JIRA() function Edited

 I want to run this JQL query using a JIRA() function in a Google Sheet:

project=JEDI AND issuetype="technical task"

I have tried unsuccessfully:

JIRA("project=JEDI and issuetype=technical task", "story points", 0,100)
JIRA("project=JEDI and issuetype=\"technical task\"", "story points", 0,100)

Question: what is the grammar when you have spaces in the JQL ?

Note: the JIRA() function is able to handle spaces in column names like "story points"!

Hello @Edwin Meijer ,

In order to be able to use composed properties names (multiple words separated by spaces) in the =JIRA() function you have to surround them with single quotes as shown in below screenshot:



So, in your case:

=JIRA("project=JEDI AND issuetype='technical task'")




Awesome - thanks for the quick response

You are very welcome @Edwin Meijer !

I will ask to have this documented in the page: Use Jira Cloud for Sheets 


Have a nice weekend!
