JQL Question: Assignee WAS IN ("user1", "user2") DURING ("date1", "date2")?

hi gang,

i'm trying to use this query, but it seems to ignore the DURING part.

Assignee WAS IN ("user1", "user2") DURING ("date1", "date2")

I expect to get a list of tickets that had been assigned to user1 or user2 between date1 and date2. a more concrete example:

Assignee WAS IN ("djones", "fsmith") DURING ("2014/08/01", "2014/08/16")

what i actually get is what appears to be a list of all tickets assigned to user1 and user2 for all time. In other words, the DURING clause seems to be ignored.

what am i doing wrong?

Jira version:

  • v5.2.9#852-sha1:71473fa

You use incorrect query. By this query you will find issues when those assignees were assignees in certain period.

You should use https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Advanced+Searching#AdvancedSearching-CHANGED this operator instead. Regrettably, as I know it doesn't support multiple users in from, so your request will be changed to

ASSIGNEE CHANGED TO "djones" DURING ("2014/08/01", "2014/08/16") OR ASSIGNEE CHANGED TO "fsmith" DURING ("2014/08/01", "2014/08/16")

Hope that will work for you
