JQL to find issues that do not have a specific field

We are implementing a rudimentary traceability matrix and are looking to establish the following link:

A custom field called Requirements ID (implemented as a List), filled in for every issue (in the form of a Zephyr test).

I am looking to prepare a filter which would give me a list of all Requirements IDs - even the ones that have not been associated with an issue (test).

In other words I am looking to seek the Requirements that do or do not have tests associated with them.

For instance, if I have 3 requirements ID (A, B, C) and 2 issues (1,2) that only correspond to requirements A, I am looking for the following output:

Why don't you just use a built-in pie chart???

jql = Requirements ID is not empty -- generate ap ie chart and the issues which don't have it will have the value irrelevant.

Have you tried "is EMPTY", for instance "ourField is EMPTY "?

That, unfortunately, didn't do it. I am trying to cross-reference the Requirements ID against Key. Requirements ID is a list. I am looking to output all the Requirements ID against the corresponding issues (key). There could be Requirements ID in the list that do not, yet, have corresponding issues.

It sounds like you are looking for a report more than a single search. You could use the single level group report available in the projects list. This will output lists of issues under eachrequirement ID so

- 1
- 2

This will likely still fail to meet your requirements as it will not show empty IDs.
