  • We have a filter which returns the error "A value providec by the function 'currentUser' is invalid for the field 'assignee' "

We have a filter which returns the error "A value providec by the function 'currentUser' is invalid for the field 'assignee' "

Here is the filter that returns the error:

assignee was currentUser() AND (status = Reopened OR status = "In Dev") ORDER BY updatedDate DESC

The strange thing is that the following filter works fine (same dash, same time):

assignee = currentUser() AND status = "In Test" ORDER BY updatedDate DESC

Any ideas how to fix this?
