Hello,

I would like to be able to filter all issues just where I am mentioned, cc'd, or assigned on a kanban board.  I am new to JIRA< so any help with this (probably basic) question would be greatly appreciated.

Hello @Jamie Jacques 

Welcome to the Atlassian community.

The first question is are you using Jira Cloud or Jira Server/Data Center?

If the URL you access is like https://something.atlassian.net then you are probably accessing Jira Cloud. If your URL is different then you can check if there is a version number displayed at the bottom of the screen. It will appear at the bottom of many screens, like Dashboards, but not all.

Once you know which hosting environment you are in, then you can reference the right documentation for learning about conducting searches.

Cloud: https://support.atlassian.com/jira-software-cloud/docs/search-for-issues-in-jira/

Server/Data Center: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirasoftwareserver/searching-for-issues-939938681.html

To get issues based on matching any one of multiple conditions (assignee OR watcher) you will have to build a JQL statement. 

assignee=currentUser() OR watcher=currentUser()

That will work in either Jira Cloud or Jira Server/DC.

In Jira Cloud to search for yourself being mentioned in text fields like Comments and Desccription you can use:

text ~ currentUser()

I don't know if that works in Jira Server/DC. I don't have a system that I can test against.

I can confirm text ~ currentUser() works in Jira DC!

As @Trudy Claspill said:

"To get issues based on matching any one of multiple conditions (assignee OR watcher) you will have to build a JQL statement".

In this example (assignee OR watcher OR mentions):

  • assignee=currentUser() OR watcher=currentUser() OR text ~ currentUser()
