Exact Search on Field Type select List (multiple choice)


I have a Field of the Field Type Select List with multiple values possible.

I need to filter out all Issues where the value equals X and the Issue has no other additional values.


issue A , value : X, Y

Issue B value : X


Search for X and return of the search is only issue B .


Is there a way to make this happen ?

Thanks a lot in Advance!

Hi Florian,

you have to use JQL for that:

"Field name" = X and "Field Name" != Y

If there are more values than x and y, you have to repeat the second part for each other value



Hi Thomas, Thank you for the answer, but this option is unfortunately not feasible as the field as hundreds of options.
