How to search for issues with a specific (text) custom field that was updated during the last day? Edited


I need a search function or jql line that will return issues in which certain custom field of type free text multi line was updated within the last day period.


Thank you!

Hi Eitan,

I was able to use a line such as the following to accomplish that:

cf[10116] is not empty and (updated > startOfDay(-1) OR updated > endOfDay())

You will need to change the value for the cf field - cf[10116] - to match your custom field value.  You can find the correct value by going to Administration >> Issues >> Custom Fields.  Click the cog and hover over Configure or Screens option.  From there you'll see the custom field id in the URL at the bottom left of the browser window.

Hopefully you can use that to get started!
