Rest API call to search issues with OR operator


I'm making following REST api call to my on-demand JIRA instance. OR (key=AAAA-10)

 issue with KEY AAAA-11 is deleted from my system, so since it is OR operator i'm expecting to get information of AAAA-10 issue in such case (it does exist on system) but I'm getting an error response - 

"errorMessages": [
"An issue with key 'AAAA-11' does not exist for field 'key'."
"errors": {}

Please advice.

If you need to look for number of issue keys it is better to use "key in (AAAA-10, AAAA-11)". In this case you will not get an error if some key is not present into system.

@Vasiliy Zverev , thank you for quick answer!

Unfortunately got same error with this one -

You are making this REST via some JIRA user. Are you sure that this user has a permission to browse this issue?

@Vasiliy Zverev

yes, this is Admin user.

if I make call with jql=key in (AAAA-10)

JIRA returns me the AAAA-10 issue.

AAAA-11 is deleted.
