How can I add a new filter that allows me to select tasks without a filled "estimate" field. I read about the ability to save search results as a new filter - but that doesn't work. I need to be able to filter by the "estimate" field, if it is not filled.

project = myProject and estimate is EMPTY

Where myProject is either the key prefix for your tickets (EX: JIRA or ABC etc) or myProject is the actual name of your project

And where estimate depends on what you use, story points, time logging, etc

We use time logging, so my JQL search would like this

project = "Legacy" and originalEstimate is EMPTY

If you are estimating using story points, filter would be something like

project = PROJECT_NAME AND "Story Points" = 0 ORDER BY created DESC

You can omit Project = PROJECT_NAME as well. You can anyways replace story points field with whatever the estimate field you are using.

  • I'm 99% sure that SP = 0 <> SP = Empty.
