You should be able to use JQL tricks plugin. Need to pay @Jobin though :)

use versionsBefore function and give a big value for the date. The results should include all versions which has a release date.

Jobin can confirm.

not available on onDemand though :)

Ah, I miss the OnDemand tag always :(

No worries! The information is still quite beneficial. We're moving away from OnDemand because of too many limitations. Appreciate the advice.

You should just be able to use:

fixVersion in ("name of version")

Do either of those work for you? This page ( should also be able to help provide various fields and methods for querying those fields in Download JIRA and OnDemand.

I was looking for a more generic way of doing it. Yes, I did this - but, it's not maintainable as others create versions without release dates. This happens when they are doing affinity planning. Plus, new versions are added with release dates. So, I was looking for a way to pull in only those versions either with a date or exclude those without a date, without having to name specific ones.

@kalynn -- according to the search documentation, "fixVersion" doesn't support searching based on properties of the field except "released" or "unreleased", so it would only be possible if there were a custom plugin that provided such a function.
