Unable to get data through REST call for a JQL for custom field.

Looking for this query 

Where I have one custom field is in query param ( customfeild_17941 in 'username1' ) and i need to see data for customfield_11783


Here is the query ( i tried both none of them working )





when i am putting in browser, both are working , but i am making golang call , it is not working . It is not issue with golang as other simple JQL without parameter , it is working "https://myserver.com/jira/rest/api/latest/search?jql"


Can you please let me know what could be the issue ?

Hi Utpal

Have you tried just the JQL part directly in Jira's issue filter? Check that it works there, because "text" custom fields can't be queried for content.

If I set up a text custom field, I can use cf is EMPTY or cf is not EMPTY, but I get an error if I try cf = "fred" or cf != "fred" or cf in ("fred", "notfred").

You are able to query date fields and numeric (I think)

Thanks for reply !

I have tried that , it works , while I apply to JIRA

Type=Bug  AND cf[11783] IS NOT EMPTY AND "Dev Lead" = utpal

But when i am doing through HTTP POST It's not taking the JQL part , I can see only fields in the request are coming but filtering is not working 

var rawJsondata = `{\"jql\":\"(Type=\"Bug\" and cf[11783] IS NOT EMPTY  and \"Dev Lead\" IN (utpal"))\" ,\"startAt\":0,\"maxResults\":100,\"fields\":[\"summary\",\"duedate\",\"issuetype\",\"priority\",\"cf[11783]\",\"status\"]}`

data := new(bytes.Buffer)


resp, err = client.Post(url,"application/json; charset=UTF-8", data)
