Searching for issues that were not completed on time

Hi JIRA experts,

How can I get the list of issues that were not completed on time?

I tried the query below, but I am getting an error message

status = Done and due > resolved

Date value 'resolved' for field 'due' is invalid. Valid formats include: 'YYYY/MM/DD', 'YYYY-MM-DD', or a period format e.g. '-5d', '4w 2d'.

Thank you in advance

The query you made doesn't respect the syntax, like the error tells you. In JIRA out of the box, you can't compare the results of two functions like that, unfortunately.

A quick, low-technology fix would be to export a query of your Done issues to Excel and do the comparison there.

Otherwise, that sounds like something you could script in a custom JQL function using the Scriptrunner plugin.

Thank you for your prompt response. I knew that I was not respecting the systax but I had the hope that It would be an alternative to compare both fields like in other technologies such as SQL. Anyways, I really appreciate your help. I will take a look at the Scriptrunner plugin.
