Advanced searching - functions reference

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.

approved()

Only applicable if JIRA Service Desk is installed and licensed.

Search for issues that required approval and have a final decision of approved.

Syntax
approved()
Supported fields Custom fields of type Approval

cascadeOption()

    location in cascadeOption( "USA" )
  • Find issues where a custom field ("Location") has the value "USA" for the first tier and no value for the second tier:
