How to find out if a user is default assignee for components via query

One of the JIRA users has left the company and transition was not smooth. As a result, there are still components (across multiple projects) which have the user either as default assignee or component lead. I want to determine which are these components so that I can reassign. Is this possible via JQL?

Hello Manju,

This is not possible using JQL. JQL can only return issues, not components in it's result set. Here is a postgresql query which should help you get what you need:

select pname, cname, component.lead from component
join project on (component.project =
where lead = 'username';
