JIRA Activity Stream Gadget - Username

Hi There, 


How should I input for username filter while using the Activity Stream Gadget?

I tried ("UserName"), 'UserName', UserName, but none of them works.

I'm pretty sure the user name is correct.

To find the correct value for Username go to the Advanced Filters screen.

If you don't get the JQL entry field, click on Switch to JQL.

Clear what is in the field and enter "assignee=" and follow that with your first name. JIRA should pop-up a matching entry for you to select.

When you select your name, in the JQL field it should automatically change that to show your username. This is the value you need to put in the Activite Gadget filter for Username.

I tried what you suggest. However, I still get nothing even I'm pretty sure there are comments added by the user.
