Using the advanced search feature in the Issues section, I want to find all issues where I am NOT listed as a watcher (there can be multiple) and where I have at some point been the assignee. I've tried this:
assignee was estrom BEFORE now() and status != Closed AND watcher != currentUser() ORDER BY status ASC, key ASC
but it's still returning issues where I am listed in the watcher field. Where am I going wrong?
Ah, good, then I think you just need to tweak the watcher != bit. I think that is being read as "the watcher is not the current user". Looks right at a glance (and it completely confused me on my first comment too), but thinking about it, I think that will only match cases where the current user is the *only* watcher.
I think it needs to be "key not in watchedIssues()", because that says "check each issue, get the list of watchers and drop it if the current user is in there".
Torturous to explain in English, but it probably makes perfect sense in logic/computer
Um, I'm stuck. You say you want to find issues where you are not a watcher (before the JQL, which, incidentally, looks like it should work), then say that it's returning issues where you are not listed in the watcher field. That sounds correct? I suspect a typo here?
