How can I use JIRA search to list all issues, in which the query issue custom field has NOT a certain entry?

I used the JIRA search to search issues which have a certain entry in a "Query issue multi linker custom field":

issuetype=MyIssueType and "My Custom Query Field" = ReferencedIssue

This works.

I tried the following to list all issues which do not have the entry:

issuetype=MyIssueType and not "My Custom Query Field" = ReferencedIssue

This does not work. Furthermore, the operators "~" and "!~" (CONTAINS and NOT CONTAINS) are not supported by the issue type.

Hi Ralf, I am creator of this add-on. Try, please

issuetype=MyIssueType and "My Custom Query Field" != ReferencedIssue

I tried that, but in this case I don't get any issues. Although I am certain to have one, in which the issue is not referenced.
