query for issues by any member of a team

I created a couple of "teams" in Jira (standard).  I would like to be able to get a list of issues where any team member is the assigned person that issue.  I don't know how to query for any of the team members, or if that is even possible.

I have a query where assigned = a or assigned = b or assigned = x  

but would rather have one that goes more like assigned = anyteammember

or may be assigned in (team_name).  Is that possible?

Hi @Scott Thurston 

If you mean "Teams" as in those you create via the People section, not that I know of. You can @mention teams but not search for them in JQL.

I'd consider using user groups - to do this you'll need to be a Site Admin, and then:

  1. Go to Jira Settings > User Management
  2. Select Groups from the left-hand menu
  3. Create a Group, give it a name (eg. Team-1) and add users to it

^ Once your users are in a group, you can search for all members as a group using JQL - for example:

assignee in membersOf("Team-1")

Hello @Stephen Wright _Elabor8_ 

Is supporting this on the roadmap?

In larger organizations, team leads don't have admin privileges but can typically assemble teams using the People section.

It would make a ton of sense to be able to query the teams that are managed there, as opposed to filters that we have to maintain painstakingly at the moment like

assignee in (user1-id, user2-id, user3-id, etc.)

Exactly what feature did you use to create a "team" in JIRA?
