Can we list jira tickets that have ever been assigned to someone?

We are looking for this for reporting, lisiting only current assignees doesnt tell too much about previous activity.

Hi Sorin,

did you try "assignee was username" ?



Thanks a lot

Thank you so much!


With JQL:

assignee was admin

where "admin" is the user.


/edit: If you want to find all issues that have ever been assigned to anyone, you could use

assignee != NULL OR assignee changed

It would be nice if this worked with was in membersOf("") as well so you can do this for a group; but it doesn't seem to work even though it lists membersOf as one of the choices for 'was in' (btw, membersOf works fine for the same group when I just use "in") so I know the group and the syntax are legit.

assignee was username
..should do the job
