Help JQL Status Changed FROM BEFORE

Hi Folks!

My JIRA version is the ancient 4.4 :)

That said, I am hoping to generate results from:

project = BOLOGNA AND status changed FROM ("w, "x", "y") to Z BEFORE "2012/09/28"

But I get not results...and I know there are results. What I want to generate are all issues whose status was changed from x,y,z to Z before September 28, 2012.


Also I have tried:

status WAS "Z" BEFORE "2012/09/28"

SORRY, this should be correct now:

project = BOLOGNA AND (status changed FROM "x" to "Z" BEFORE "2012/09/28" or status changed FROM "y" to "Z" BEFORE "2012/09/28")


Are you getting an error, or is the search recognized as valid but has no results?

Thx, but still no results :(

And, if there is no error, can you confirm that both statuses "x" and "y" go directly to "z"? because that is the functionality of changed (went directly from A to B). Instead, are you wanting to search for an issue that was in "x" at some point, or "y" at some point, and at another point was in "z"?

Fiddled around, I think you want this:

project = BOLOGNA AND (status WAS "x" BEFORE "2012/09/28" and status was "Z" BEFORE "2012/09/28" or status WAS "y" BEFORE "2012/09/28" and status was "Z" BEFORE "2012/09/28")

let me know if that works

Great! It works! Thanks Nat.
