we have a number of projects with various issue types, where each can have one or more "people fields (not restricted to a single user) I want to see all the issues a team member is involved in. I don't see any good options to search for that. I can search for assignee, reporter, and such, but not for custom people fields. I'm sure it's possible to do this using JQL?
Another option would be to automatically add everyone assigned to any of the people fields as a watcher and then search for watchers.
Hello @Marinus Pennings
Welcome to the Atlassian community.
You said "People" fields. That terminology is used with Team Managed projects. Are you trying to search for issues in Team Managed projects?
You should be able to create a JQL statement to search such fields. Start typing in the name of the field and fields with matching names should appear.
I've also been able to find the fields with the Basic search and the +More button.
Thanks for the very fast response and suggestion @Trudy Claspill . Correct, this is a team-managed project. Actually, I'm not very familiar with company-based projects.
I'm embarrassed to say, but I don't know where to find the search in your screen shot. The closest I can find is to click on filter --> all issues. Then I get the following. One of my people fields is "reviewer" but when I type that under "More+" it doesn't show up. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong.
apologies for the slow response. Actually, I did the same, filters --> all issues. It just looks a bit different in my case (unless there are multiple filter menu tabs).
When I use the basis search under "more+" I don't see a "reviewer" field. I just noticed in your screenshot it shows as "+more" but in my screenshot it's "more+". So maybe we are looking at different things. I'm using Jira work management btw, not Jira software (in case that is the difference).
However, when I use the JQL search bar, "reviewer" does show up (when I start typing it shows up as suggestion) so I can use that. Problem solved. Thanks. I do have a different issue though, which I should probably ask in a new thread.
Thanks for the fast and responses, it definitely helped
Glad I could help.
My environment has the Jira Software product installed, which includes the Jira Work Management project. If you have only the Jira Work Management project there may be some differences in the screens.
