I'm trying to save a filter as the following:
(status in ("To Do", "In Progress", "Publish To Live") AND (assignee = currentUser() OR assignee = btr.users)) OR (status in (Review) AND reporter = currentUser())
After clicking save, the filter/jql remains correct, but if I leave the page and come back to the filter definition, it loses the parenthesis and presummably changes the results/meaning of the query. After coming back, the filter looks like this:
status in ("To Do", "In Progress", "Publish To Live") AND (assignee = currentUser() OR assignee = btr.users) OR status in (Review) AND reporter = currentUser()
Any advice on how to preserve the filters would be greatly appreciated.

But does it? As a quick check you can just see if the same number of issues are returned for both queries.
If they are different, looks like https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-39107.
I think I might have just panicked at first look, but from my quick batch of tests, both of the following always behave the same (correctly).
var toDo = false; var assignEE = false; var toReview = false; var reporter = true; ( ( toDo && assignEE ) || ( toReview && reporter ) ).Dump(); ( toDo && assignEE || toReview && reporter ).Dump();
Well, this is just showing that my conditions evaluate to the same regardless of the nested parenthesis. So, I guess I'm saying/hoping that there isn't a problem with JQL in terms of not keeping nested parens, but rather it was 'smart enough' to realize they weren't needed and just saved appropriate query. Hopefully JQL isn't simply L to R and does obey order of operations correctly... - PS, this 2 comments per 24 hour limit force by JIRA is hard to work with ;)
