How can I specify two users in JQL and have them show as one in the results?

I want to create a query that will search for User1 and User2. But I want the result set to show them as User3

Hi Heidi,

              JQL is to search for Issues based on Users. You cannot explicitly search for users and display users.

  • The Result set will always be Issues.
  • If you are talking about SQL can you re-phrase your question with more context






I have two leads who have requests assigned to them but they are actually the backlog. I want to have a filter like below

      assignee in (user1, user2), key, status

Instead of having the result

     user1    1234    submitted

     user1    2345    submitted

     user2    3456    submitted

I would like the result to be:

     Backlog 1234    submitted

     Backlog 2345    submitted

     Backlog 3456    submitted


What do you mean they are actually the backlog? Is that even a user? You cannot manipulate the JQL results (change something to something else). You should be looking into another option to get what you want here.
