Jira API v3 JQL search assignee & date range


I would like to use JQL to search for issues by assignee, and date range to the past month. I can get issues by assignee like so:

https://{{JIRA BASE URL}}


But how do I get issues by date as well? The second parameter is ignored in my query string. I'm using postman to test my API calls: 


https://{{JIRA BASE URL }}


I would usually just use the "&" character to add an extra query value but I'm not seeing any change.. I'm just a bit confused about how to add any additional parameters to my searches using JQL, past the first param.

Any help on this is much appreciated !

Hi @Carlos Faddul  and @Bill Sheboy , 

So this resource points me to advanced issue searching. I am on Jira Software - where can I find this advanced issue searching page? This will be useful for my future searches.

I found my answer using:

url: `${process.env.JIRA_SITE_URL}/rest/api/3/search?maxResults=2000&startAt=0&jql=worklogDate>startOfMonth()+and+assignee=${assignee}`,

Click on the Filters menu. The last item in that pop up is "Advanced issue searching".

Hi @Isabelle Bolt -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

You appear to have some syntax errors in your JQL.  I recommend initially creating your query with advanced issue search in Jira, and then grab the expression from the browser URL to use in your REST API call.

Kind regards,
