Jira filter for unwatched issues


I'd like to collect the issues which I don't watch in the project and what are unresolved and my group is the participant.

But the filter doesn't collect that issues at all.

This is the filter:

project in ("Project A") AND watcher != currentUser() AND Participant in (user_1, user_2, user_3, user_4) AND resolution = Unresolved

When I run this filter it collects some issues, but remain a lot.

I don't filter for issue types, but I think it isn't necessary

What is the solution? What's wrong with this filter?

Thanks a lot!

Instead of "watcher != currentUser()" use:


issue not in watchedIssues()

Thanks a lot! :-)
