I use JIRA cloud. And my team uses "approvers" field to request for reviewing casually. But I seem that we can not search by "approvers" field by using JQL. Please teach me how to search by "approvers" field on JIRA.
Hi @tokuda ,
Please check this one:
It finds requests that require or required approval by Tansu.
Hope it helps.
Hello and sorry to hijack this question but I have the same problem. I'm trying to filter on a specific name in the Approvers field, across multiple projects, some of which are service desk and some are classic business.
I have tried:
status = "Awaiting Approval" AND Approvals = approver("rmitchell") ORDER BY created DESC
and get No Issues found.
Any advice here? Thank you very much in advance.
You can use the OR function to separate queries to both fields to return all of the results.
status = "Awaiting Approval" AND Approver = 5d7bd791458a170db4b0a687 OR status = "Awaiting Approval" AND Approvals = approver("Jason Sweet")
Where 5d7bd791458a170db4b0a687 is Jason Sweet's ID , it will return both Software and Servicedesk issues that Jason sweet has been or is an approver on that is currently "Awaiting Approval"
(TIP: if you type out the "Approver = " part of the query you can search users by name and it will input the ID)
