filter based on Multi User Picker

HI All,

I ma having some issues trying to update the "Only my issues" filter on one of my boards to include user stories based on a custom field containing a multi-user picker.

Essentially we have user stories that are assigned to multiple engineers (cross functional groups), I have added a custom box that allows use to list several team members and this is woring fine. What I want to do is check to see if the currentUser is one of those listed in the field...

I got this far

assignee = currentUser() OR "Assigned to (multiple)" ~ currentUser()

but as the '~' operator is not supported by the Multi-user picker field this doesnt work.. anyone got any ideas?

Hi Graeme,

Please try the following query:

"<custom_field_name> in (currentUser())"
