problem in finding my not logged issues by worklogauthor in jql


I tried to find my not logged issues by this jql query:

(assignee = currentUser() OR "Pair Assignees" = currentUser()) AND (worklogAuthor != currentUser() OR timespent is EMPTY)

but the worklogAuthor Function, only finds the first user who has been logged in jira.

for example if we have more than one record in worklog table for an issue:

-User1 : 2h

- User2 : 4h

this query cant find the User2 as a logged person, cause the worklogAuthor function only finds User1 as a logged user.

Hi Hamed,

I believe you're running into a rendition of the bug listed in JRASERVER-60022.  It is a bit different from what you're reporting:


Multiple users (A, B and C) log work on an issue (i.e ABC-1) and then, user A runs "worklogAuthor != A" on Issue Navigator.

Current Result

It returns all issues where other users have logged work including ABC-1 where user A has log worked too.

What version of JIRA are you using and are you using any time related plugins, e.g. Tempo?
