JQL functions

This page describes information about functions that are used for advanced searching.

A function in JQL appears as a word followed by parentheses, which may contain one or more explicit values or Jira fields. In a clause, a function is preceded by an operator, which in turn is preceded by a field. A function performs a calculation on either specific Jira data or the function's content in parentheses, such that only true results are retrieved by the function, and then again by the clause in which the function is used.

Unless specified in the search query, note that JQL searches do not return empty fields in results. To include empty fields (e.g. unassigned issues) when searching for issues that are not assigned to the current user, you would enter (assignee != currentUser() OR assignee is EMPTY) to include unassigned issues in the list of results.

startOfDay()

Perform searches based on the start of the current day. See also startOfWeekstartOfMonth, and startOfYear; and endOfDayendOfWeekendOfMonth, and endOfYear.

Syntax

1 2 startOfDay() startOfDay("inc")

where inc is an optional increment of (+/-)nn(y|M|w|d|h|m). If the time unit qualifier is omitted, it defaults to the natural period of the function, e.g. startOfDay("+1") is the same as startOfDay("+1d"). If the plus/minus (+/-) sign is omitted, plus is assumed.

Supported fields

Created, Due, Resolved, Updated, custom fields of type Date/Time

Supported operators

= , != , > , >= , < , <= WAS* , WAS IN* , WAS NOT* , WAS NOT IN* , CHANGED** Only in predicate

Unsupported operators

~ , !~ IS , IS NOT , IN , NOT IN

Examples

  • Find new issues created since the start of today:
    created > startOfDay()

  • Find new issues created since the start of yesterday:
    created > startOfDay("-1")

  • Find new issues created in the last three days:
    created > startOfDay("-3d")

startOfMonth()

Perform searches based on the start of the current month. See also startOfDaystartOfWeek, and startOfYear; and endOfDayendOfWeekendOfMonth, and endOfYear.

Syntax

1 2 startOfMonth() startOfMonth("inc")

where inc is an optional increment of (+/-)nn(y|M|w|d|h|m). If the time unit qualifier is omitted, it defaults to the natural period of the function, e.g. startOfMonth("+1") is the same as startOfMonth("+1M"). If the plus/minus (+/-) sign is omitted, plus is assumed.

Supported fields

Created, Due, Resolved, Updated, custom fields of type Date/Time

Supported operators

= , != , > , >= , < , <= WAS* , WAS IN* , WAS NOT* , WAS NOT IN* , CHANGED** Only in predicate

    created > startOfMonth()

  • Find new issues created since the start of last month:
    created > startOfMonth("-1")

  • Find new issues created since the 15th of this month:
    created > startOfMonth("+14d")

startOfWeek()

Search for new issues created since the start of the first day of the current week. By default, this function considers Sunday to be the first day of the week. You can use a different day (for example, Monday) as the start of the week. See the syntax in the examples mentioned below. 

See also startOfDaystartOfMonth, and startOfYear; and endOfDayendOfWeekendOfMonth, and endOfYear

Syntax

1 2 startOfWeek() startOfWeek("inc")

where inc is an optional increment of (+/-)nn(y|M|w|d|h|m). If the time unit qualifier is omitted, it defaults to the natural period of the function, e.g. startOfWeek("+1") is the same as startOfWeek("+1w"). If the plus/minus (+/-) sign is omitted, plus is assumed.

    created > startOfWeek("+1d")

  • Find new issues since the start of last week:
    created > startOfWeek("-1")

See also startOfDaystartOfWeek and startOfMonth; and endOfDayendOfWeekendOfMonth and endOfYear.

Syntax

1 2 startOfYear() startOfYear("inc")
