How can I export GreenHopper Backlog only?

I would like to export the Backlog for Management reporting. Is there a query that I only identify the items int he backlog?

Hi Avi,

As a JQL query I would suggest using: project = "ABC" and Sprint is EMPTY to return all records that do not have an association to a sprint.



Thank you Paul, this is good except it also adds the issues that are assigned to non-active Sprints. Is there a way to eliminate them?

Hi Avi,

A more specialised JQL query would be:

project = "ABC" and issuetype in (standardIssueTypes()) and issuetype != Epic and status not in (Resolved,Closed) and Sprint not in (openSprints()) OR project = "ABC" and sprint is EMPTY and issuetype != Epic


That did not work. Now I have too many issues. Is there a document that explains all of the Greenhopper fields and functions to be used in JQL query?


The original query is the best. I looked at the result set again and it is including all the sub-tasks as issues which resulted in the discrepency in the count compared to numbe rof issues in the Backlog.

Hi Avi,

Here is a great document on the fields available to JQL: These fields will also apply to GreenHopper.

The extended query may not have suited your needs as Rapid Boards can be configured differently. It may be useful for further customising your own query :)

Friday Fun: What's your favourite beer/drink

As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
