REST API Endpoint for customfield_number is not empty

I'm working on a get request that gives me all JIRA issues with the custom field "Sponsor". Since it's an optional field, the value is often empty. So out of all issues in a JIRA project, how can I extract those who have a sponsor? My query looks like this so far

What is missing? I do know the customField name and id.

I tried




But it didn't work

Hi @Miraculous Ladybug , 

Welcome to the community!! 

You can just add it to the JQL query param normally:

Project = yourProject AND yourNumberField is not EMPTY


Hope this helps!

Thanks Tessa :) My problem is that I'm writing the query in my URL and not in code.  I don't quite understand how I can write this in my URL... Do you have an idea?

Hi @Miraculous Ladybug , 

I haven't run this particular one, but normally you just have to encode the params to use the in URL. You can use sites to do this for you like 

Depending on how you are running the call there are other ways ofc.
