JQL Search by User Picker (multiple users)


I have to create a filter for a gadget in dashboard that would return only issues that have the currentUser() among the users selected in a User Picker (multiple users).

I tried using somenthing like "... AND currentUser() in (<multiuserpicker_cf>)", but it Jql doesn't seem to accept this syntax.

I also tried to use something like "... AND <multiuserpicker_cf> ~ currentUser()", but the "~" operator doesn't work for customfields that are not of text types.

Have anyone any ideea about how this filter should be written in order to make it work?

Hi Ligia, 

Supported Function for currentUser() is EQUALS and NOT EQUALS operators, for IN and NOT IN operator you need to use memberOf(). 

Excerpt from advancing searching doc- https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/advanced-searching-179442050.html

Use <multiuserpicker_cf> = currentUser()


When used with the IN and NOT IN operators, this field supports:

  • membersOf()

When used with the EQUALS and NOT EQUALS operators, this field supports:

  • currentUser()

Hi Taha,

I noticed that <multiuser_cf> = currentUser() works as well.

Any luck with that?
