How to track task that is no longer assigned to me, but initially was?

Tenyu Stoynov April 6, 2024

I want to create a board to track the tasks or defects that were initially assigned to someone of the team, but have since been reassigned to someone outside of the team. Please suggest how to do that

Hi @Tenyu Stoynov and welcome to the Community,

Depending on how you organise your team in Jira, you should be able to do something like this with history search on the assignee field.

In this example, I am assuming that you have a user group available that has the members of your team in it. I am also assuming that you are only interested in issues that are not done yet.

assignee was in membersOf("your team") and assignee not in
membersOf("your team") and resolution = Unresolved

This should give you a list of open issues that were once assigned to people from your team ('your team'  would be the name of the group I referred to earlier). If you don't have a group with your team members in it, you could also replace this with a list of your team members, but that would be less scalable if your team changes members or if it is quite large.

Hope this helps!
