JQL to find bugs set to Ready for QA within a specified date and time range

The Product Owner wants to able to identify which Jiras were set to Ready for QA on a date in the past. this has come about because we discovered something unexpected had broken. It was discovered a few days later and she wants a  filter that allows us to find any Jira set to DONE/READY for QA on a particular day before the deployment time of 11pm.

I can find DONE for any date using:

project = projectname AND issuetype = Bug AND status in (Done, "Ready for QA") AND updated >= Date1 AND updated <= Date2 order by created DESC

It’s not picking up “Ready for QA” - I assume this is because the last Updated Date is the one which is when the tester set it to Done. However, I would have thought that anything being set by the Devs as Ready for QA would get picked up.

I suspect there is no way to find bugs set to Ready for QA within a specified date AND time range but thought I'd ask.

Hi @Karen Bayly

This is possible using history searches, which work for a small number of fields including status. In your instance, something like this should work:

status was "Ready for QA" DURING ("2019-09-15 00:00","2019-09-17 23:00") and project = ABC and issuetype = Bug

^ There are other things you can do - such as looking for issues changed into or out of "Ready for QA" in a time range - you can see more details on this article.

For Done - consider using resolved date rather than updated date. Unless you have restricted editing via status properties, you can still update an issue once its closed.


Thanks. That worked a treat.
