Query Issue Custom Field: JQL for empty value

Hello,

we're using the Query Issue Custom Field plugin. The field in question is configured to allow empty values.

Those "Emtpy" valus are displayed by the word "Empty" in the Issue-Screens or an blank value in the drop-down field.

So far, works as designed.

 

However we're having troubles querying for issues, because the JQL

customField is empty

also returns issues that have "Empty" as the value for the Query Issue Custom Field (so essentially, no connected Issue).

We'd like to retrieve only Issues where there is an acutal other issue linked by the Query Issue Custom Field.

 

So, how to query for such Issues?

 

Best regards,

Thomas

Try customField = "empty". the expression IS Empty is reserved for JIRA.

 

Thank you Peter, that works for us!
