Help with a filter

how can I set up a filter to check if the reporter field has the same value/text as one of my customfields? I need this to filter out certain issues

hi @JayJuan Jones , you cannot compare Fields with OOTB JQL. One possible solution would be to leverage automation. Automation does provide the ability to compare fields. To that end, you could construct a rule that you could run manually. This rule could check for conditions where the reporter matches your custom field and if found then an action could add a label. Following this manual action you could use JQL to find issues that did not include that label. This is just one possible idea that you could look into.

that's a good idea, do you have any examples? When I go to automation and look for my customfield, it is not giving me an option to select my customfield. Am I looking in the correct area?
