JQL Query with Nested groups

Hi,


I'd like to run a query that lists the tickets that were created by reporters that belong to Support-US group.

that group, Support-US includes support-customer1 and support-customer2 (nested-groups is activated)

But when I do this query:

reporter in membersOf(support-US)

It returns nothing ("No issues were found to match your search")

whereas when I do :

reporter in (membersOf(support-customer1), membersOf(support-customer2))

=>I get the corresponding tickets.

Can you help me please?

Thanks

Delphine

Hi Delphine,

looks like you found your answer already. When you use reporter in (values) JQL wants values that represents a list of users. Since your group support-US does not contain users but groups there is no result:

reporter in membersOf(support-US) is basically the same as reporter in (support-customer1, support-customer2)

When you use reporter in (membersOf(support-customer1), membersOf(support-customer2)) the values inside the brackets (of in) are users and you find the corresponding tickets.

Regards,

Udo
