Are there plans to include the "is not" operator to "linkedIssue" field?

I need to create a JQL filter to display only issues that do not have any "Linked Issues" associated with them. 

Or to create a filter to display only issues that do not have Linked Issues to a target project.

Hi @Adilson Gal 

As you're on Jira Cloud, the correct answer is to get an app that provides JQL extensions you're looking for.

With standard JQL, you can only get a list of issues and export them to Excel for further processing. This works if you want to do a one-off analysis. If your use case is more dynamic than that, look beyond standard Jira.

Standard JQL doesn't easily allow it, but you can quickly find the results using our professional indexing service JQL Search Extensions

You can use this query to find all your issues that are not linked to another one.

issue not in linkedIssuesOfQuery("")

Check out the documentation for more examples.

If you have any other questions, please contact our support. We’ll be happy to help you!
Best regards,

Thank you, Mauricio.

@Adilson Gal Welcome to the Atlassian community

I was not able to find a feature request for that but you could submit one here: 

There are also apps in the marketplace that provide this functionality so you might take a look there.  

Thank you, Brant. 
I appreciated the prompt response and suggestion to request a new feature.
Have a great week!
