How can I search where fixedversion is not equal to affectedversion in issue navigator?

I would like to do reporting on how many bugs are returning on released versions over a given period. The query has to factor in that the affectedversion and fixedversion cannot be the same. This is to distinguish from internal bugs logged.

How would I be able to that in the issue navigator? The following query is not working:

issuetype = Bug and affectedVersion != fixedVersion

Thanks.

Emil,

This is not possible right now in JIRA. You have to pass the values of each parameter separately. So you need to have something like:

issuetype = bug and affectedversion = 1 and fixversion != 1.

Also, check if the JQL Tricks won't help: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.j-tricks.jql-plugin

Cheers,

Thanks for the answer.

That is a real pitty though. I presume if I use the Jira developer sdk I can write direct sql queries against the Jira database, but this is a bit of a awkward workaround to get simple reporting.
