Filter to unreleaseVersions()?

Howdy y'all .. I was just wondering if anyone knows that it's possible to write a query which does the following (in my made up pseudo query language):

show tickets that have a fixVersion matching ABCD-* where any ABCD-* fixVersion has NOT been released

I basically want to filter on unreleasedVersions but matching a prefix.

Yes and no. The clause "unreleasedVersions()" will do the "has not been released", so you could say

fixVersion ~ "ABCD-*" and unreleasedVersions()

Problem is the versions don't support wildcards, so the ~"" won't work.

Yeah, even if ~ worked with wildcards, this still wouldn't achieve what I'm trying to accomplish. If a ticket had two versions, ABCD-1.0 and QWER-2.0 where ABCD-1.0 was released, your proposed query would still show the ticket.

It's almost as if we needed to go in the other direction ...

unreleasedVersions() ~ "ABCD-*"

Mmm, no, I think it matches your question, because it'll return issues which have an unreleased ABCD~ version. But I see what you're getting at. Shame we can't do it - a wildcard search to fetch versions would be useful
