How To: JIRA JQL Query

I am looking to create a query to identify the number of unresolved tickets on a specific date. In the query below, I am attempting to find the number of unresolved tickets on April 1 2017. This returns no results while "resolution was not fixed" does. 


created <= -42d AND resolution was Unresolved during ("2017/03/31", "2017/04/01")

What happens if you use this JQL?:

resolution was EMPTY on 2017-04-01

If this doesn't return anything and you definitely had unresolved issues on that date, then check that you haven't defined a resolution called 'Unresolved'.

Theres information about why that's a bad thing on this page:

"Don't create a Resolution named "Unresolved"/"None"

Any issue that has the Resolution field set is treated by JIRA applications as "resolved". The Issue Navigator displays Unresolved when no resolution is set for an issue. So adding a resolution named Unresolved/None and setting it in an issue will mean that the issue is seen as resolved. This will lead to confusion and is not recommended."
