Find Issues that a deactivated user was watching

Josh Goedert May 9, 2024

Is it possible to find issues that a deactivated user was watching? I have been playing around with JQL and can't seem to find exactly what I am looking for to narrow it down. Wondering if its even possible.

Yes, it is possible. What you need to do is get the Atlassian Id for the deactivated user, which you can do by going to Teams and lookup the user, or via You can then use it as part of your query like this:

watcher = <atlassian Id> e.g. watcher = 1111122222333334444455555
