Searching for multiple labels

I have a very simple question but can not find the answer with multiple trys. I need to search in Jira for issues that have two labels A and B. The default seems to be A or B and I can not find a way to change the operator. I tried both A AND B, A and B and neither works...

8 answers

labels = A AND labels = B

Can this be specified in the search interface?

I would like to make this search work in the Issue Navigator. Is that possible?

or .. labels in (A, B)


you're right!

that's an OR not an AND :-) That search would return all issues with either A or B as a label

Like # people like this

it will check if it is in both the label then only it will filter

in (A) AND labels in (B)

I like this shorter version, thanks.

project = XXX AND issuetype = Bug AND Labels in (XXX) AND Labels in (XXX)

I agree, that is an OR

None of the posted suggestions are correct. This multi value field (it's not a text field) seems to handle the search set intersections like an "OR" rather than "AND"


Will post here if I find anything helpful. I need to search where Labels have three set values, not one or two of the three. Probably end up doing a count of the labels containing certain characters... a wobbly solution.

Products like this add-on app give a clue about searches involving these type of fields. I'm not buying another add-on for our use case, or going complex with jump-through-hoops programming to hammer together a search routine. There are other fields that we can use to suit our scenario.

I had the same problem filtering components.  This is how I solved it.  Unfortunately it doesn't work with the basic filter, I had to use advanced to edit the text itself.

I am able to filter issues that have both "Customer" and "FPGA" components by including this string:

"AND component = Customer AND component = FPGA"

I am able to filter issues with "Customer" and NOT "FPGA" by including this string:

"AND component = Customer AND component not in (FPGA)"

labels = A OR labels = B // if any of labels can be true 

labels = A AND labels = B // if both must be found for a specific task
