JQL: Why does out of bounds created date search not throw an error?

Raj Vora April 11, 2023

Searching for issues based on the created date field while using the "between" or "in range" qualifiers, does not display an error (which I would think it should) in the "results view" when the:

a.  Specified 'After' field is later than the 'Before' field ("between" qualifier)

b.  Specified 'From' field is later than the 'To' field ("In range" qualifier)

All that is displayed is:

"No issues were found to match your search

Try modifying your search criteria or creating a new issue."


Note: A "!" is displayed when attempting this out of bound search in the Basic search but not in the Advanced search.

I suspect it's because the clauses are evaluated independently, it's not looking at the to/from together.  (In range is translated to two independent clauses, a before and after)
