Is there a way to search for an exact value on a version field?

If I have a version field (e.g affectedVersion), which can store multiple values, and I want to find all issues where there is a specific combination of values (not just issues that contain any of them), can I do it?

e.g.

Issue 1, affectedVersion = 1.0

Issue 2, affectedVersion = 1.0, 2.0

Issue3, affectedVersion = 2.0

 

Is there a search that I can do to identify issues where the affectedVersion only contains "2.0" (i.e. I want to return Issue 3, but not Issue 2)?

Thanks

You would need to filter on version 2.0 and exclude in the same query all other versions (possible if you have only few)

fixversion = "2.0" and not fixversion in ("1.0","1.1","1.2",....)

But since the second expression can contain many versions I don't think it is feasable.

Thanks - yes, unfortunately I have a lot of versions, so while this might be feasible as a one off, it will be difficult to use longer term.

Yes, that's why it is not feasibel. With each new version you would need to change the filter. So since scriptrunner isn't available on JIRA Cloud, I guess you are stuck.

Thanks.

Is that available for the cloud version? I can't see it in the marketplace.

Unfortunately no . This plugin is not available for cloud.

You have to use script runner plugin for that,

It gives an option to look for exact match

Ex:

project = ABCD AND issuetype = Epic AND fixVersion in versionMatch("Version 1.1")

Hey

Don't know if it's still relevand but for the future generations:

-I wanted to search for a specific fixVersion(So Issue2)

-I've tried the method above but i still got result that have more than 1 fixVersion.

-about 4 hours later i started thinking and found out this:

fixVersion not in versionMatch("^(?!Version 1.2.3$)")

and it works properly ;)
