Save JQL with brackets in Quick Filters

I have a Kanban board and try to set up some Quick Filters.
I cannot save JQL that consists of brackets for the logical rule. They just disappear.
So, I cannot save the JQL like this
any_filed = smth OR (any_filed = smth2 AND another_field = smth3) 

I get the same, but without brackets:
any_filed = smth OR any_filed = smth2 AND another_field = smth3

It doesn't look like an expected behavior and I cannot create sophisticated filters.

Hi @Vitalii Stavropolskyi , welcome here on the community :).

I just checked on my instance and following JQL behaves as you described:

  1. assignee = currentUser() OR ("Change risk" = High AND "Change type" = Normal)
  2. -> Save ->
  3. assignee = currentUser() OR "Change risk" = High AND "Change type" = Normal 

But this JQL behaves correctly

  • assignee = currentUser() AND ("Change risk" = High OR "Change type" = Normal)
  • -> Save -> 
  • assignee = currentUser() AND ("Change risk" = High OR "Change type" = Normal)

But I think it is because of optimization of the JQL query, because AND (as logic operator) takes precedence over OR.

So JQL on row 1 is the same as JQL on row 3 (I mean both means the same - logically)

Thank you @Martin Bayer _MoroSystems_ s_r_o__ for the answer and investigation!

It is really an explanation.

Just didn't expect this optimization on the fly. In my case, I have 8 logical operators in a row and brackets helped me to structure this query. But the most important is to be sure it works as expected. Thanks!
