How can I add a filter by Assignee in Jira Structure ?

I have already set some filters : Capture.JPG


As I try to add a fiilter by assigne (assignee = currentuser()) or Assignee = firstname.lastname), the structure shown is empty.

Could you pplease help me to set that filter properly?

Hello @Céline SERIN 

Thank you for sharing your Structure question here on the Atlassian Community.

The currentuser() function doesn't work in generators as expected due to the Structure's architecture. In any structure, all generators run on behalf of the same user - the structure's owner(you can find this user in any generator's configuration as the Runs As user). The owner can't be a dynamic user so the currentuser() function can't work here because, from the generator's perspective, the structure's owner is the current user at all times. 

For the Assignee = firstname.lastname, filtering by a specific user should work, so it's unclear why it doesn't in your case. To help us better understand your set-up, do you mind providing some screenshots with the results when you add this filter? Please reach out to us directly at , in order to avoid public sharing your set-up.

In the future, it will be possible to filter by the current user, so if you are interested, we can send an update to the ticket once it's released.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards,

Thanks a lot for your return.

Here is the structure we are working with. We’ve got some Initiatives with Epics, Tasks (story, bug) and sub task linked. Lots of issues….

I would need to filter by Assignee, to know my to do list.

Hi @Céline SERIN

Would you be able to share what you are trying to accomplish with the report? Your structure values have a lot of insert and add lines that may be simplified.
