JQL Query Dummies Guide? Is Not does not seem to be working

Hi

I can't get a simple JQL Query to work this morning.

I want to filter out all issues of Status closed.

So i would expect

AND status is not .....   to work

I have tried

  • is not closed
  • is not "closed"
  • is not (closed)
  • is not ("closed")

Any ideas?

 

Also if there is a great dummies to experts guides

Hi Stuart,

 

status != Closed

should do the trick for you. The autosuggest functionality of the search for issues - advanced screen really helps for finding these syntax tips. 

Thanks

Yes that worked.

The auto suggest offered up that in the list, 'is not' did look the best option. Obviously not.

Thanks

Status is not in (Closed)

should work as well
