JQL Is there a way to make a statement for a filter where creator = assignee

I want to show all the our service desk issues where the person who created it also assigneed themselves to it.  

It gives me an error saying assignee is not a property of creator. 
How do I make the query for them to be equal?

It's not possible without plugins. For example Script Runner has the expression function, which allows you to do:

issuefunction in expression("project = PNAME", "assignee != creator")


You could also use the Power Scripts add-on:

In this case your JQL would look like this:

key in silJQLExpression('assignee == reporter', 'project = TEST and issueType = \"Bug\"')

Jira itself doesn't allow such a comparison, but if you happen to have ScriptRunner installed, you can use the following expression:

issuefunction in expression("", "assignee == creator")
