Can JIRA smart search find issues that are not closed?

I like being able to find open tickets for a project with a quick (smart) search like "PROJ open"; however, most of our ticket workflows quickly leave the "open" status and the query I need is something like "PROJ !closed". I've tried "PROJ !closed", "PROJ -closed", and "PROJ not closed" but none of these work.

Is there a way to smart search expression to find all tickets for project PROJ that have a status other than closed?

I think what you are doing is the best workaround ;) There is no other wt at the moment.

FWIW, the "workaround" I'm doing for now is to search for "PROJ closed" to get the opposite of what I want and then adding a "!" in front of the equal sign in the query editor.

Another option is to filter by resolution: "PROJ unresolved".

This is a decent alternative until !closed is implemented. Thanks!

that would almost work for me but unfortunately it would rule out anything that's resolved but not yet closed.
