JQL for displayname

Hi

Is it possible to use JQL to compare the display name similar to how currentUser()) works? 

Like this: status in ("In Progress", "To Do") AND assignee in (currentUser())


But for displayname status in ("In Progress", "To Do") AND assignee in "displayname"

Hello,

if you use IN operator, then it must be assignee in ("userkey"). You can type the display name of the user and Jira will put the userkey itself.

Is it possible to get the currentuser "Displayname" this way?

 

We basically want to create a filter that filters on a display name instead of username

No, it is not possible. But why would you need that? More than one user has the same displayname and you want to query issues for those users?
