I added a new custom checkbox field (single checkbox, labeled/option "Yes") to an existing JIRA installation. The field is called "Regression Tested?". I then created a query to find all items from the last release that don't have this field checked so we can do regression testing on it. My query is this:
Status=Closed and fixVersion="<version>" and "Regression Tested?" IS EMPTY
However, any JIRA item that was created before this field was created and added to the entry/edit screens are not returned with this query (they should be EMPTY by default?). Only newly created JIRAs and existing ones where I have edited the checkbox value on and off (and then saved) are being returned. I also tried using "Regression Tested?" is NULL and also "Regression Tested?" != "Yes". These didn't work either.
How can I get existing JIRA items to show up on this filter?
I just did. It helped, but only slightly. Now I'm getting a few items returned to the filter, but not nearly as many as there should be. And the ones that are showing up were not edited since this field was added, so I have no idea what would be different between them and the others. If I take out the "Regression Tested?" IS EMPTY clause from my query I get all of the items.
Any other thoughts?
