How can I create a filter with on demand input?

For example: instead of currentAssigne(), each time I run the query it will will ask me for which Assignee?

I don't want to create a filter with assigne=xxx. I want the same query to be used over and over with a parameter as an input.

JIRA doesn't have any function to do that.  Save a filter and then educate your users on how to get to it and change the assignee for their own run of it.

Hi Iko,

I suggest to create a filter and reuse this filter in an additional jql query. Simply create a filter with your condition and WITHOUT the assignee value/parameter. Save the filter to filter1. Nor create a new jql query like

assignee = hgerlach and filter=filter1

As you can see now you can change the assignee parameter easily. It even works with URL parameters/query strings. So you can either define the assignee or you even can define the filter ID via parameters.
