How to find issues in backlog using JQL with JIRA Agile?

I just upgraded from Greenhopper to JIRA Agile.

How does one search for issues in the backlog?

It looks like this is how you would do it (equivalent to backlog view in planning board):

project = *project_name* AND issuetype in (Task, Bug, Improvement, "New Feature", Enhancement) AND sprint is EMPTY AND resolution = Unresolved and status != Closed

I discovered that Sprint = Empty is not enough if you have open issues that were once part of a previous sprint. Instead I ended up using the suggestion from this thread https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/142125

issuetype != Epic AND resolution = Unresolved AND  (Sprint = EMPTY OR Sprint not in (openSprints(), futureSprints()))

This worked for me. Thanks, everyone.

Brilliant! Worked for me too.  Wish I hadn't spent a morning on it before Googling it though....
