How to search for issues affecting a version and not affecting previous versions?

I'm trying to search for issues affecting a version Y and not affecting versions released prior Y.

I tried following jql requests, which are not working as they are giving me in results an issue with AffectsVersion set to (X,Y):

AffectedVersion = Y and not(AffectedVersion < Y)

AffectedVersion = Y and AffectedVersion >= Y

How is the order of your versions set up in your project? This is important if you use the < or > comparison operator.

X < Y in my example

I can reproduce your case, the only solution I found is that you have to use the not in operator.

AffectedVersion = Y and AffectedVersion not in(X,W,V,U,...)

Maybe someone got a better solution?

Thank you very much for trying to help, but the solution you found doesn't scale well in a project (as mine) where the number of releases < Y is large.

We can't envision to specify explicitly all releases < Y in all our filters, that would be very difficult to handle.

I was expecting ordering of versions to help on such requests, but it seems like requests based on combining ordering operators and multiple values in AffectsVersion behave "strangely".
