resolution is empty vs unresolved


Can you please let me know what is the difference between jql statements

Find issues that do not have resolution:

resolution = unresolved


resolution is empty

When issue is created is resolution by default unresolved with database value null.

When Resolution is empty(in database) then it shows on screeen that its UNRESOLVED

Hence, as per my understanding there is no difference when querying (JQL), the resultset is same.

By Atlassian meaning field "resolution" is pseudo-boolean

it interpretes as resolved if there are any value assigned to field and as unresolved if field empty

so other synonym for your request is

resolution is NULL

There is unfortunately another possibility, that there is a resolution with the value "UNRESOLVED". I have seen this several times, normally happens when people export/import to and from jira via CSV.

And it's a bug imho that jira allow this to happen.
