Using group membership as a filter

1. I have a Group Custom Field called Custodians.

2. I want to create a filter that displays records only if the current user is a member of a group that is listed in Custodians.

3. For example, let's say user lcassin is a member of group Meanies. And "Meanies" is in the Group Custom field Custodians in several records. I'd like to have a filter that shows lcassin all those records.

Is this doable?

JQL Tricks plugin (commercial) has a groupsOfUser function. You can do something like this for current user.

Custodians in groupsOfUser()

You can also check it for groups of specific user.

Custodians in groupsOfUser("XYZ")

JQLT did exactly what I needed. Thank you! Thank you!
