JQL: Get started with advanced search in Jira
What are elements of a JQL query?
A simple query in JQL (also known as a “clause”) consists of a field, followed by an operator, followed by one or more values or functions.
- Field – Fields are different types of information in the system. Jira fields include priority, fixVersion, issue type, etc.
- Operator – Operators are the heart of the query. They relate the field to the value. Common operators include equals (=), not equals (!=), less than (<), etc.
- Value – Values are the actual data in the query. They are usually the item for which we are looking.
- Keyword – Keywords are specific words in the language that have special meaning. In this post we will be focused on AND and OR.
