How to obtain currentuser IN membersof("groupA") in JQL ?

I need to make several dashboards that show tickets to logged in users IF they are members of certain user groups.  So the same filter should return only tickets IF the logged in user belongs to one of the groups that is responsible for the tickets. 

Example filter (sorry I do not use the full correct JQL syntax, I just want to show my idea here, type is a custom field I use):

(Type = CV and currentuser IN membersof("CVowners"))

OR  (Type = JV and currentuser IN membersof("JVowners"))

OR (Type = OTHER and currentuser IN membersof("OTHERS"))   

This one filter would enable me to show only relevant tickets to the logged in user on dashboard IN CASE the user is member of the user groups that manage them. 

I do not need to make separate filters then, the user gets all the tickets that he needs to see per type if he/she is in the owning group. 

BUT the currentuser can't be used at the left side of the operator IN.  So this is not possible ?   I have the same with assignee IN membersof() and that works super !  

So I can't do this ?  Any other idea to do the same ? 

Thanks !

Hi Kristof,

That is correct.  The currentuser() supports the Assignee, Reporter, Voter, Watcher and  custom fields of type User fields.

The following are unsupported operators:

    ~ , !~ , > , >= , < , <= IS , IS NOT , IN , NOT IN , WAS , WAS IN , WAS NOT , WAS NOT IN , CHANGED

I did some research and found a Communities post that may help you.  The suggestion was to use ScriptRunner or to use SQL.  Take a look at the post by Vasiliy Zverev and see if you can perhaps modify it to fit your needs.
