JQL advance search options

Hi team,

I am trying to craft a query that should do the following things, see below for your reference, though struggling to progress/find a solution.

Could you please advise? maybe share a sample? or point me into the right direction?




1.  create a list of jira cases using some basic filtering (all good)


project = "some_text"

and summary ~ some_text

and created >= startOfMonth(-1M) and created <= endOfMonth(-1M)

and status = done

order BY created DESC


2. for each jira case in the list produced above run a subquery, this is where i got stuck

This is the pseudo code I am trying to write using JQL though not sure if the fields/attributes needed could be used or if they even exist


if jira.ticket[] + 24h is <= to jira.ticket.child[] then list jira.ticket

run the loop through the list produced till the end of the list


any advice would be welcome! 


PS: should I consider using API route instead of JQL advance search?

Hi @Oscar Gargallo , welcome to the community. Unfortunately you cannot do this with JQL as there is not support for date compares or >,< operators. Automation provides some of these functions so you might consider using a custom field and setting it to true or false depending on your logic when an issue move to done. Otherwise look to the marketplace for potential add-ons to meet your needs.

thanks, I appreciate the feedback.
