JQL "assignee was in membersOf() on" doesn't work like expected

Hi,

I have the following JQL:

createdDate >= 2016-05-01 AND createdDate < 2016-06-01 
AND assignee WAS IN membersOf("Support") ON 2016-06-06

The search doesn't return any issues.

If I run the search without the ON part

createdDate >= 2016-05-01 AND createdDate < 2016-06-01 
AND assignee WAS IN membersOf("Support")

The search returns several issues where at least one of them had an assignee of the group Support at the date 2016-06-06.

Did I miss something about the ON functionality? I think 

assignee WAS IN membersOf("Support") ON 2016-06-06

means "all issues where the assignee was someone from the group Support on 6th of June 2016".

Our JIRA is a Server 6.4.12

Thanks,

Henning

"WAS" only supports a few functions, membersOf is not one of them - see https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirasoftwarecloud/advanced-searching-functions-reference-764478342.html#Advancedsearching-functionsreference-membersOfmembersOf()

Actually I don't see that what I said above is relevant, although obviously membersOf would return the members of the group "now", rather than on the date, but I guess you are aware of that.

That's right. What it is a little bit weird is the fact that I've been able to use it successfully; despite of the red cross being shown, the correct list of issues seems to be retrieved...

Mmh. assignee WAS IN membersOf("Support") works like expected, only if I add the "ON" part nothing is returned.

Maybe it's working because it's  recognized as "assigne was" (allowed)  and "in membersOf()" (allowed).

Ok, I tested the same query with a list of users instead of membersOf() and this works.

mmm... that's strange. I'm getting the following error message:

"A value provided by the function 'membersOf' is invalid for the field 'assignee'."

I confirm I've used a valid value (an existing group name).

Googling it, I've found this response.

In a nutshell, it is not working because your group Support contains at least one inactive member.

May you try again after removing all inactive users from the Support group?

Hope it helps.

I think the answer you've found corresponds to another problem. I don't get any error messages, there are simply no issues found if I add the "ON" part.

I tested the same query with a list of users including an inactive user and this works, too. So Jamie seems to be right.

Yeah, IN (user1, user2,...,userN) works.

There are some groups with a lot of members where that approach might not be so handy, though.

Glad you have worked around it in a good enough way smile

Just ran into the same problem.

I noticed that "assignee was in..." only works if all users in the set has had an issue assigned to them at some point. membersOf or just a long list of users doesn't factor in.

I suspect that the new member in your "Support" group got an issue assigned to her while the problem was discussed.

It works. Thanks for your suggestion.
