Is it possible to filter by Assignee is NOT User?

I created a JIRA user to assign things to that are not to be "done" such as tickets to log time for meetings, etc.


I want to filter these out of a board view. Is it possible to filter by issues to Assignee is NOT a certain user? Or, do I have to filter to Assignee = all other users except this one?

option 1.  assignee in membersOf(<your_group>)AND assignee not in ("username1") 

option 2.
assignee not in ("username1")

or just use - assignee != "<user name>"

Thank you, that worked!

Yes, and you've almost answered your own question - NOT is a valid operator in JQL.

Most of us would use the ! shorthand though.

Assignee is not currentUser()

Assignee != currentUser()

Both do the same job. 

Thank you, that worked!

This seems to work half for me on the backlog. 

assignee != "<username>"

also filters out all of the tickets which are not assigned. How do filter out only that username?
