How do I create my team members as group using Jira query and passing the input to the other query?

Hello Team,

     I am having ~15 members in my team, when ever I writes the query I used to copy all team members name in different queries like

project =SAMPLE AND (assignee in (user1, user2,user3...User15)

when my team members changes I keep on changing the user name. It would be better If i have the query like "My team members" as one query which are having 15 names and passing the input other filters like

project =SAMPLE AND (assignee in (My team members) ...

Is it possible to have such query?

You could create a group for these users and filter users by this group in this JQL query:

assignee in membersOf("your group")

For me I don't have specific group name. I need jira query to write team members group

You can create a group and add there yourself and your team members.

Where do I need to create a group. I dont have such option in my jira page.


You are not a Jira administrator. Only Jira Administrators can create groups and include users to these groups.

Is there any other way to handle this using private jira query?

Please advise that how do I manage using Jira queries

I can not think of another way.

You can create and save a filter called "Assigned to My Team" where the filter is just assignee in (user1, user2,user3...User15).

Then whenever you need to use that as part of another JQL query, you can just add it with filter = "Assigned to My Team" or whatever the filter id number is to keep it short, e.g. project=CC AND filter=1234 AND status != Done
