"developers = currentUser()" works for me when typed into JQL.  I think you have to mind the case (U in users), but if you start typing that into JQL it will auto-suggest it anyway.

the criteria is limit. currentuser() cannot be processed as a criteria. "currentuser in developers" will show error message.

the result filtered by "developers = currentUser()" just contain the ticket i developed alone. the ticket developed by multiuser is not show in the result

That's not correct though. "developers = currentUser()" will return a list of issues where the current user is named in the developers field. You are explicitly stating that you are only interested in the currentUser - the person actively typing. I think that means you're misunderstanding what it does. It seems like your question is actually "show me issues where users X, Y or Z are named in the field". So try "developers in (x, y, z)"
