Search for 2 labels (A AND B) AND no other label


i have a small problem. I want to search for 2 labels sharp!

Whats this means. There are some issues with label A and B. Some Others have A and B and C ...

I want to search for the issues with the label A AND B without the test with more labels. This seems to be an odd search but i need this. 

I tried some thing like

(labels = A AND labels = B) AND labels != *

But this is obviously an invalid input.


Can some one help me with this issue?

I don't think you can do this off-the-shelf.  

I know of an easy trick though, I did it with a derived field addon (I'd do this with Script-runner now).  The field provided was a simple "number of labels" number field, so you could do "labels = A and labels = b and number-of-labels = 2"

Hi Hendrik,

You can use a JQL like the one below:

labels in (label1, label2, label3)

-- Arthur Gonçalves

I don't think that's right - if I understand the question correctly, Hendrik wants "issues which have label1 and label2, but no other labels". Your JQL will find any issue that has label1, label2 or label3

@Arthus Goncalves

The labels in does for me:

label = Label1 OR label = Label2

This is not what i wanted. 


@Nic Brough 

Thx maybe i will try that!
