How to select issues with only one Fix version

Is there an ability to select all issues that have particular fix version but excluding issues with that one and other fix versions.

For exmaple, I have issue #1 with fixVersion = Rel1, Rel2 and issue #2 with fixVersion=Rel1.
I need query and return issue #2 only.

Is this possible using advanced searching?

ok here we go:

go get jamies script runner plugin first.

with this one installed you can query exact matches as described here:,fieldname,regexp%29

one examle for you:

i created two test issues.

#1 with fixVersions = v1,v2

#2 with fixVersions = v2

this is the JQL to use in advanced search to grab #2 only..

issueFunction in issueFieldExactMatch("project = TEST", "fixVersions", "[v2]")


To add - I would like to avoid counting all versions as in and not in.
So query
fixVersion in("Rel1") and fixVersion not in ("Rel2")
is not desirable.

What if you choose fixVersion = "Rel1" ? Will this show issue #1 too?
I see. So you're asking for a query with an exact match. I will try something out and then let you know...

sure it does - that's the problem

Thank you, will take a look. It's bad there is no standard way in JIRA to do exact match query...
