How do I add a numeric field that allows to search using the operator "<=" and ">=" ?

What I want to achieve:

  • Allow the users to enter a numeric value (between 1 to 100) in fieldA (custom field) of their tasks.
  • When I go to 'Issues and filters' I should be able to select that particular fieldA and set a range say 10 to 80. This should show me all the tasks that have value in fieldA that falls between that range.


I have tried numeric field but it does not support the operators >= , <= and = 

I have also tried 'select list (single choice)' custom field. It also does not support the operators.


Please suggest a solution for this.

Are you sure your number field has proper search template? 

Go to custom fields, find your field, press cog icon and then edit.

"Number seracher" should be chosen.

@Ilya_Turov Thanks. Let me give it a try and get back to you.


Thank you.

I noticed that the default value for a number field's search template is 'number searcher' and when I changed it to 'number range searcher' it solved my issue and I was able to search by range.

not exactly what I meant originally, but glad the direction I gave you was correct

Number field do support <= and >= operators. Could you provide a screenshot with the error?

You are correct. Since I had search template as just 'number searcher' it was not working. I followed @Ilya_Turov suggestion and it worked.

Thank you.
