Is it possible to exclude issues with a certain Component from a timesheet report?

I am experimenting with issues that have a component named "Roadmap". These issues exist in multiple JIRA projects. I would like to exclude these issues from my timesheet, but if I use a filter with the JQL "component != Roadmap" in my timesheet, the gadget takes forever to render (presumably because the filter returns hundreds of thousands of issues). Is there an alternative way that I can go about accomplishing this? Thank you!

Andriy, thank you for your response! I was confusing myself with how I was checking the components. The following JQL seems to return all of the issues that I expect: "worklogAuthor = currentUser() AND (component != Roadmap OR component is EMPTY)"

Thanks again, and have a good day!

Great, glad it works!

Update: I was able to get the filter to (mostly) work by changing the JQL to "worklogAuthor = currentUser() AND component != Roadmap". The only problem that remains is there are certain issues that I have logged work to that are still not being returned by that filter. Perhaps I am misunderstanding how worklogAuthor is used. Does "worklogAuthor = currentUser()" only return issue for which the current user is the only user to have ever logged work?

worklogAuthor should return all issues you've ever logged work on, also even other users have logged work on it. May be you can try worklogAuthor alone and see if component makes some issue disappear. Additionally you may use worklogDate clause, if you'd like to include all users worked issues, or limit result to issues recently worked on. Sorry I can't imagine better way than this.
