I am wondering what does the "updated" actually means in JQL: Does it cover absolutely any change to the issue or is just some particular modification?
For example, if a user logs time under the issue, does that mean that issue was "updated"?
"Is this going to filter all updates on the worklog between those days?"
No, that's not the case. Because workLogDate basically means the "Date selected" while logging work - https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRASERVER-1959
This date can be in future as well. So the JQL which you have shared will only fetch issues which have the workLogDate in the specificed time-period.
For example - You can log your work on an issue today and while logging work select the workLogDate as 20 August. So when you search using "updated" field like
updated > startOfDay()
Then you will get the issue which you updated with work log but if you try
worklogDate < endOfDay()
Then you won't get this issue because you updated the issue today but the worklog date you selected is for 20-August
Okay, got it.
So WorkLogDate is not connected to the act of updating but to the content you write there.
Good to know, @Tarun Sapra
So when it comes to updates, the only thing I can actually query using JQL is the overall update on the issue (using the "updated").
Do you thing there is any way to specify that we are looking into updates of a specific information, which in this case is whether the worklogs were updated?
'updated' specifically works for the following actions:
And you can use the preset functions for the timing periods, such as:
updated < startOfDay()
It doesnt really work for =, !=, is, is not, in, not in
And yes, it will be to find any action on the ticket that was updated within the given function timing period
