Hi @Tarek Makram ,

category != xxx

category not in xxx

category is not xxx

You can use the operator "NOT IN" or "!~" depending on the field that you are looking to search.

Example: component != "Component Name"


Please refer for additional guidelines and examples for operators in JQL.

Thanks for your answer! 

Please note that I need to search in "Customer Type - Category" for Ex: Customer Type: xx However in the category "childOption" need to be all "childOptions" expect Y,Z,..etc.

I think "NOT IN" will make the search, not in all "parentOption"

I hope you got me.
