Hi @njain2_markem-imaje_com,

You could try:

assignee in membersof("a Jira group") 

where a Jira group would be exactly that: an existing user group in Jira.

Or also:

assignee in ("Person 1", "Person 2", "Person 3")

if you don't have a group available, but know the list of people is limited.

Make sure to not only think about the group, but also how you will relate those people to their issues: they may be assignee, reporter or watcher.

I'd suggest the latter option Walter is suggesting here. It's easier to modify a list than it is a group.

an example query could be

project = xyz AND assignee in (user1, user2, user3) AND status in (open, in-progress) ....

In addition to Walter's suggestion (which I think is the correct one(s)) - you can use a QUICK FILTER to narrow down an existing board to just view the work from the list of people.

A quick filter is nice because it doesn't require changing the board much, and can be toggled on/off.

You still use the same JQL for it, but you'd only want to include assignee in (user1, user2, user3)

Also worth mentioning that the JQL will update to be a long string after you are done.  That's intentional, and you can't change it. 

Thanks Walter


I have used the first query and it worked like a charm.

Thanks once again for your help.
