I have a Custom Field Name I want to use:
"Story Points[Number]" is EMPTY ORDER BY created DESC
But is does not return the desired results.
Using Field ID does work, but is not desired:
cf is EMPTY ORDER BY created DESC
Why am I unable to use the field name?
Hi @Matthew Risch ,
I'm not sure why it doesn't work for you, I was able to test and confirm that I'm able to use the field name when doing a JQL search :
"Change completion date[Time stamp]" is not empty
You can see the query below :
Let me know if this helps,
I know that if there are various custom fields with the same name, it will then require the ID to Differentiate, so perhaps that something. Currently there is:
in the system for one field I am looking to see if is empty, but these should be different enough for Jira to not be confused. NOTE: I’m aware there is some reorganization needed given this example of the Team field isn’t unique in this environment, but that is a different topic and is underway)
A buddy of mine suggested that maybe there is a Nextgen project within this instance that has the Team field, which would cause this one to need the ID. I’ll look into that and respond back.
appreciate the help!!
I recall some Suggestions and Bugs from jira.atlassian.com, something like this one:
In your opening post you are referring to field "Story Points" but later you are referring to several spellings of "team" in fields - I don't know if this was just an example?
For the similar bug reports the solution was indeed to use the ID as well.
There is also a report around where "EMPTY" does not return the desired result if the field was previously populated.
Probably this does not apply here, unless one of the "Team" fields is of type multi-line (Text Field).
