JQL: difference between resolution = and resolution changed to?

Hello,

What is the difference between "resolution =" and "resolution changed to" when running JQL.

project = KSENROLL AND resolution = Fixed AND fixVersion = M7

Returns 1287 Issues

project = KSENROLL AND resolution changed to Fixed AND fixVersion = M7

Returns 1330

Thanks

Ben

The "CHANGED" operator is used to find issues that have a value which had changed for the specified field.

This operator has the following optional predicates:

  • AFTER "date"
  • BEFORE "date"
  • BY "username"
  • DURING ("date1","date2")
  • ON "date"
  • FROM "oldvalue"
  • TO "newvalue"

check the following document to get knowledge on advace searching

the former one is where the resolution is currently set to fixed. The latter one is any tickets that has had resolution as "fixed" but could now have a different value.

You can also see by example what characterizes the difference by trying these two queries:

project = KSENROLL AND resolution changed to Fixed AND fixVersion = M7 AND NOT resolution = Fixed

project = KSENROLL AND resolution = Fixed AND fixVersion = M7 AND NOT resolution changed to Fixed

ah, Thank you!
