I did three searches
a) custom field A is null = X issues
b) custom field A is not null = Y issues
c) Pressed search with nothing in the search window. and got Z issues.
Now ideally, i would expect
X + Y = Z
but i found that Z was 50 issues more than X + Y.
How is that possible?
Any ideas guys?
Yes, field is global context and text field custom field.
is empty returned 89000
is not empty returned 0
the third one returned 89050
Its 89K issues so i cannot identify the discrepancy.
since there is a discrepancy i am not sure if it is safe for me to delete the custom field. I do not want to delete some data which i cannot recover later. hence my concern
Its global context, text field Custom field.
is empty returns the same results as is null
is null == is empty == 89000 issues
is not null == is not empty == 0 issues
empty search returns = 89050 issues
I cant find out those 50 issues since we are 89K issues, manully identifying is impossible.
My requirement behind asking this question is to identify whether a custom field is safe for me to delete or not. If i am sure that no issues are using this custom field i will delete this.
How can i be absolutely certain that a custom field has not been used?
