However it works just fine when executed through the web UI.
Here is the query: Project=<project name> AND resolutiondate > 2016/10/29
The query when executed through the REST API returns all issues for the project instead of returning only the ones that are resolved after 2016/10/29
I was able to solve the issue by using "Project in (FV)" instead of "Project=FV"
I assume you mean REST API (the web ui also uses the API, but not the REST one)
Could you give us the REST call you are making? Also, could you use a different date, one that's clearly correct and we can tell the difference between month and day (some cultures incorrectly mess up the least<->most significant order and put month before day - 2016/10/10 could be either, but 2016/10/31 is right and can't be mistaken)
Ok, that looks like it should work (and return all FV issues resolved after 29th October 2016). I suspect it might work in a browser, but you might have to encode it fully in other places. You've already got most of it, but try this (I've dropped the braces, for simplicity)
