Is it possible to create a Structure whose content depends on the user that is using it?

To illustrate with an example, it is as I would want to create a Structure with "my open Issues", taking into account that this will be different for each user that launch the Structure.

Hi @Victor Crespo,

Transformations would be helpful in this case – it's a Structure feature that lets you make local adjustments to a structure, without changing it for everyone else.

"Assigned to me" is a quick transformation (or filter) that you can already choose by default, but you can of course add more filters as needed.

Hope this helps,

No.  You can't have a structure vary by who is looking at it.  You can have a structure include different issues by user when the structure is using a filter like "reporter = currentUser()", but the structure itself is a fixed layout.

I am trying to imagine a scenario where this would be of any use.  The point of a structure is to have a shared understanding of how issues are related to each other.  You don't get that if the structure varies by who is looking at it.

Hi, @Victor Crespo !

Of course, you can. Use "currentUser()" JQL function for this. 

For example:

assignee = currentUser() AND resolution = Unresolved order by updated DESC

Hi Alexander, thanks for the answer, but this does not work. I have tested it. I have prepared a structure with this JQL function, but when the structure is opened by another colleague, what he is displaying are my Issues, not his Issues.
