Can I in the JQL filters use user parameters instead of hardcoded values?


I'm using a lot of Quick filters to switch focus for a JIRA Board or similar. Let's say there are 15 persons that could be Assignee of a case. I would then need to create 15 Quick filters for everyone of these persons, like "Assignee = abc123" and so on....

I would like to create a filter with an user parameter inout instead, like "Assignee = [Give assignee]" and then when running Query JIRA should open a dialouge box Asking for user input, like "Give Assignee:______".

Is that possible to do in anyway?

Best regards / Micke

Another option on a Kanban board is to configure Swimlanes based on Assignee, that way you can collapse/expand each swimlane depending on which assignee you want to look at.

Hi, Yes, I've seen that on other boards. Could be an alternative, thanks :)
