UI: How to filter artefacts based on field empty / not empty?

Friday, December 12, 2014
From the SpiraTest UI, when viewing a list of requirements, or incidents, how can I filter based on a field either being empty, or not empty?

The fields I am interested in are custom properties that have resulted from artefacts imported from JIRA via the datasync tool. They are just general text fields, not list items.

For not empty, I've tried wildcards, as well as using '-- Any --', but neither of these have worked.

For empty, I've tried '(none)', as well as just whitespace characters, but neither of those have worked either.

Hi Jason

You cannot currently filter that way I'm afraid, it does a simple keyword match.

For more advanced searching you could use the option in Administration > Edit Reports to create a custom report using the ESQL query language and then query it that way.

Here's an article link on using custom reports.
