I just stumbled upon a problem which I haven't encountered before regarding filtering JIRA issues via JQL. Usually I like filtering for a specific period of time (i.e. issue due in the next 7 days etc.) Now a customer created a filter like
project = 'XYZ' and dueDate = '2012-02-20'
The problem is that no issues are being displayed even if they exist.
Am I missing something here?
Thx for your help
P.S. date values are set to default
And we thought you were asking bout dueDate! dueDate and createdDate are different.
dueDate only stores the date and hence you can use = in the JQL to search issues due on a date. createdDate stores time as well and hence = will work only if you include the exact time. You need to use > <= symbols as you have done above to get issues created on a date.
Thank you guys. In SQL I would need something like a datepart to get the date. So now I know that "createdDate" is a timestamp... I thought of that before and tried to test the query against dueDate which didn't produce any results either. THAT must have been an indexing problem and I thought it was a general probem I was facing!
To restrict your search by a specific date you need to follow this:
DD = The actual date you want to have results for
DD+1 = The actual date you want + 1
Obviously, if DD is 31, for instance, DD+1 will be 1 and you'll need to update the MM to MM+1, same for YYYY - i.e.: Date you want: 2014-12-31; 2nd date will be: 2015-01-01
createdDate >= "YYYY-MM-DD" and createdDate < "YYYY-MM-DD+1"
Remember that time you realized it was possible to refresh your Jira data in Google sheets with just one click? What if we told you that you can now get the latest data with no clicks at all?! Zero! ...
