How do I create an issue filter for a User Picker (Multiple Users) custom field?

I have created a custom field that is a User Picker (Multiple Users) so I can have multiple users selected within the field of a ticket.

Now, I am trying to create a dashboard filter that will show each user their individual issues they have been selected within this new custom field....



Open a jira issue >> I see the custom field mentioned above I named "Assigned Group" >> I select 3 separate users >> Save and close the ticket >> As one of these users, I want to navigate to my dashboard and see a list of all issues I have been named in this new "Assigned Group" custom field.

Hi @Michael Irving 


I believe this is possible using JQL. I have tested this and it seems to work.


Step 1 - Create a JQL

JQL: "Assigned Group" in (currentUser())

Add more filters you need


Step 2 - Save this search as a filter




Step 3 - Change the access of the filter appropriately so everyone that needs to access the new dashboard gadget can access




Step 4 - Add a new 'Filter Results' dashboard gadget 




Step 5 - In the new gadget, select your newly saved filter



Thats all.

Now everyone will only the issues that contain their name in the 'Assigned Group' field.
