excluding filter from the search

Filter 1 = Criteria 1 

Filter 2 = Criteria 2 and issuekey not in (Filter 1)


I am struggling to implement filter 2 where I want to exclude the issue keys which are result of filter 1. 


Please advise.

Hi @Leena Sharma

JQL supports the field "filter" to achieve what you're looking for, so a query like:

Filter2 AND filter != "Name or ID of Filter1"

should do the trick. For more information, I highly recommend the very good advanced search documentation by Atlassian. The link will lead you directly to the explanation of the "filter" field I described above. Please let me know if this answers your question.

Best, Max

Thanks Max. it worked and is really a nice and short way.

Thanks for sharing the link.

Why don't you try to just use the filter 1 like so:
Filter 1 = Criteria 1
Filter 2 = Criteria 2 and not (Criteria 1)

It has to be "not in (Criteria 1)", another option is "!= Criteria1"

Thanks Jakub.niepsuj

Filter 2 = Criteria 2 and not (Criteria 1) worked for me.
