binary operands in JQL


did anyone come across binary operands in JQL?

I have field Flag used as binary flag used for store information. Eg. In project A user raised (using transition) issue in project B, and it was done in IN PROGRESS status (flag value = Flag || 1), IN REVIEW status (flag value = Flag || 2). Additionally, there is project C, where user also can raise issue from the above statuses, and flag value is Flag || 4 or Flag || 8.

Then I need to find issues (and save JQL as a filter) with Flag && 10. That means, issues was raised in projects B and C from IN REVIEW status from project A.

I think you are looking for "logical operators" (AND, OR) on "flag" field values, right?

I think there is no such thing.

You could store each flag in a checkbox type field, but if you have a bunch of flags, then it could explode the number of your fields. Or, you could eventually encode the flags in an "Text" type fields and use different characters to represent the different flags and test them with the "~" operator (text matching)...
