Support for user groups/lists in JQL queries


I would like to reuse the same list of users across multiple stored filters. Is that possible in JIRA?

e.g filter one: assignee was in ( name1, name2, name2) and ...

filter two: assignee in ( name1, name2, name2) and ...

I would like to update user list only in one place, naturally.

Define a filter as assignee in ( name1, name2, name2). Then use that filter in the other filters.

filter = "Filter Name"


filter != "Filter Name"

Yep, we are using "assignee in ( name1, name2, name2)" as a filter, the problem is that there is not way to build "assignee WAS in" request from it.

I understand that

filter != "Filter Name"

Address the current state of JIRA and not the past assignees

Oh yes, WAS IN wouldn't work with this. Didn't notice that part!
