How do I query Jira to search for all issues that have been resolved within a length of time from when it was created?
You have all sorts of control with queries. For example, here is how I check for my tickets that are on hold that I have not updated in the last 5 days.
currentUser() AND status = "On Hold" AND updated <= -5d
Created in the last 5 days would be:
created >= -5d
Resolved in the last 7 days would be:
resolved >= -7d
resolved >= -1w
I don't know if it matters yet but I resolved it with dateCompare():
issueFunction in dateCompare("", "created > resolved -5d"))
So since this does not seemed to be built into JIRA by default my only other suggestion is to see if you can extend JQL to add it.
