How can I find past assignees to a JIRA issue using JQL?


I need to create a JQL which displays the past assignee to an issue.

I tried using the following query : "project = "Project Name" and issuetype in (Bug, Story,"Any issue type") AND assignee was @assigneename

but what if we don't know the assignee name what would be the query that would give me the similar data?

Hi @absy92 ,

You can try using "assignee was not in ("known users") and assignee is not EMPTY"



Thank you @Melo this does the job thank you!

If we are unaware of the assignee names or user names is there a way to get the data where I see the list of issues and their past assignee details.
