Description

In queries, the operator "All" actually returns only fields which are not empty.
Let's say I create an Issue Query with the following filter:

      Assignee:      ALL  

This will return all the issues with the assignee field not empty, same for any filter where the operator "ALL" is available.

  • Could we change the naming of "ALL" to "Not empty" somewhat?
  • It can still be useful to have a true "ALL" operator which returns any result (Empty OR Not Empty), because then we can quickly change the operator without having to remove/add the filter (especially if many filters are available to select from)
