What time do the startOfWeek and endOfWeek functions start and end?

Deleted user Sep 19, 2013


I have setup a JQL to bring me back a count of issues that were in "On Hold" during the course of last week. Query is as such:

project= XXX AND issueType = project AND status was in ("On Hold") DURING (startOfWeek(-1w), endOfWeek(-1w))

This currently returns 8 issues when I am expecting 9. On investigation i discovered the the one issue that was not counted was updated on sunday evening at about 10pm.

Question: What time does startOfWeek() start and endOfWeek() end? Does it run from Monday 00:00 to sunday 23:59?

Note: Our JIRA locale is set to GMT +2. We are in South Africa.

Hope you clever buggers can help. :)

Hi Jack,

startOfWeek() starts Sunday 00:00 h

endOfweek() is Saturday just before Midnight

Thanks for the feedback Udo. Is this configurable that the start of the week can be set to Monday 00:00 and end of the week be Sunday midnight? This would make it easier for us.

Thanks again Udo and thanks as well to Bharadwaj. I will pass this info onto our administrators to get it changed.

This is an easy one, no need for admin.  If you want the current week to be Mon-Sun, use "startOfWeek(1d), endOfWeek(1d)".  If you want the previous week to be Mon-Sun, use "(startOfWeek(-6d), endOfWeek(-6d))", and so on.  smile

This was incredibly helpful, thanks!

When would you use startOfWeek(1w)?

I had a query that set 1w and setting 1d (monday) does the same thing.  Now I'm confused.
