How do I search for only components that have a Lead of a specific person?

Hi Susan,

Components are specific to each individual JIRA project. The list of components inside a project is usually not too extensive. If you navigate to the Components list of your project, the Component Lead is shown next to the component lead.

If you want to search for issues having a component lead by a specific person (e.g. to create a list of issues on a dashboard), you can do so with this neat JQL function:

Component in componentsLeadByUser()

If you use it like that, it will show all issues with a component having the Current User (i.e. the user currently logged into JIRA), what makes it generic. If you want to make it specific to a given user, you can specify a username between the brackets like this:

Component in componentsLeadByUser(Susan.Price)
