JQL Filter openSprint() - list issues which are in X sprints


I searched but didn't find an answer.

See screenshot. A JIRA issue is in two sprints (Active RC-5.39 and Finished RC5-38).

If I use opensprints(), this issue is not listed.

Is it possible to filter with opensprints() to show boths?

from the docs -


(info) Only available if you are using JIRA Agile.

Search for issues that are assigned to a Sprint which has not yet been completed. (Note that it is possible for an issue to belong to both a completed Sprint(s) and an incomplete Sprint(s).)

Thanks for the reply. I retraced my steps and the filter is now working as expected.

openSprints() shows also issues, which are in the active and in previous Sprint.
