Issues which includes unchecked item by JQL


I want to find issue which has more than one item and includes unchecked item by JQL:

Checklist IS NOT empty AND Checklist != allItemsChecked()

But it does not work well.

Is there any solution?

What are the problems you are seeing with the proposed JQL? Is it because it returns empty checklists?

Hello Whyves,


When there are 3 issues:

Issue ZZZ-1


  • Foo (Checked)
  • Bar (Checked)

Issue ZZZ-2


  • Foo (Checked)
  • Bar (Unchecked)

Issue ZZZ-3

No checklist item


I want to get just only ZZZ-2.

But it returns ZZZ-2 and ZZZ-3.


It seems the query "Checklist IS NOT empty" matches ZZZ-3.

Is there a solution to exclude an issue which has no checklist item?

I use JIRA Software 7.2.6.
