How to search Jira for all issues involving a specific user or users?

How do you search Jira for all issues involving a specific user or users? That is, search for all issues that reference the user(s) in any way: the user commented on, is tagged in it, followed it, created it, was assigned it, etc.

I essentially want to find all issues that I (or someone else) touched in some way.

You can achieve this easily by using   JQL Search Extensions for Jira & reports plugin.

use the query like below

Please update the username with the correct username

It will get all issues where user did any activity on issue

  • user created issue
  • user updated issue
  • user watched issue
  • user voted issue
  • user tagged in issue
  • user commented on issue
  • user added any attachment
  • user is assignee
  • user logged any hours
  • user performed any transition
issue in attachedByUser("filip")
issue in commentedByUser("filip")
issue in updatedByUser("filip")
issue in transitionedByUser("filip")
issue in loggedTimeByUser("filip")
assignee ="filip"
creator ="filip"
watcher = "filip full name"
voter ="filip full name"

Thanks Muhammad. This technically works. However, it requires you to not forget some attribute.  I was hoping for a much simpler way. Perhaps it is not available. It would be a great feature though. Thank you again.

Follow this steps:

1.Go to issues-> search for issues:


2.Then filter issues for example by reporter (In this case reporter is me)


Thanks Jamil. However, this only finds issues with a specific reporter. It does not find issues that a user simply commented on, or followed, etc. I am looking for one search that finds all issues that I touched in any way.
