Running JQL Query - Updated Date not filtering

Good evening, 

I am trying to run a query for activty, when I select "Worked on" feature per person, I am trying to update the JQL query to show only those items within the last 24 hours. I used this:

assignee in (5c98dcd1*****01c20dc37) AND updated = endOfDay(-1) OR reporter in (5c98dcd1*****01c20dc37) OR creator in (5c98dcd1*****01c20dc37) ORDER BY updated DESC

**** just for protecting data, not actually in query

However, the results are not changing. Can someone help me figure out what is wrong with the JQL that I am using?

Thank you!

Have you tried "updated < endOfDay ( )" since that should show those updated by the end of the current day? 

  • Find issues due by the end of today:
    due < endOfDay()

  • Find issues due by the end of tomorrow:
    due < endOfDay("+1")

Evening, have you tried "updated < endOfDay()" since that should display the results for the given day?

  • Find issues due by the end of today:
    due < endOfDay()

  • Find issues due by the end of tomorrow:
    due < endOfDay("+1")

Hey Bhav! Thank you for helping out! I tried them both and it is still resulting in 1000+ tasks. Not sure if maybe it is just how we are utilizing JIRA in my company.

Hi @Kaitlin Meehan  -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Please try updating your query for the updated check to use >= rather than =

... AND updated >= endOfDay(-1) ...

Also, the placement of your OR statements may not be what you are seeking.  Are you really looking for things which were reported by a specific person, regardless of update time-frame?  If not, please try this:

( assignee in (5c98dcd1*****01c20dc37)
 OR reporter in (5c98dcd1*****01c20dc37)
OR creator in (5c98dcd1*****01c20dc37) )
AND updated >= endOfDay(-1)

Best regards,


Hey Bill, 

Thank you so much! So how it has been requested to track activity for my team is tasks we not only created but also listed as a watcher. I believe reporter and creator would be the same thing, but watcher is important because if we made a comment that is not tracked by reporter or creator in activty from my understanding. 

I tried the order and with >= as well :

assignee in (5c98dcd167af62601c20dc37) OR reporter in (5c98dcd167af62601c20dc37) OR watcher in (5c98dcd167af62601c20dc37) AND updated >= endOfDay(-1) ORDER BY updated DESC

and I am still getting over 1000+ results, which I know I haven't done that many in a day haha. 


Thank you again for your help! 

Hi Kaitlin,

You are missing a set of parenthesis around the user checks.  Without those, JQL is assuming something like this;

assignee IN (...) OR reporter IN (...) OR

( watcher IN (...) AND updated... )


What you may want is, noting the bold parenthesis I added:

( assignee IN (...) OR reporter IN (...) OR watcher IN (...) AND updated... 

Hi @Kaitlin Meehan 

If you won't find a solution with JQL, you can try Dynamic Filters: JQL Replacer add-on. It's created by my team to simplify database queries. Here is an example:

1. Set data you need with the help of visual composer.


2. Choose the required date or time:1 day.png

3. Select the created Smart Fields to display the result:


Hope you find the best option for you.
