workLoggedAfter() for 1 top user only

Is there a possibility to return only 1 user who has logged the most worked under a JIRA issue? We would use that function to identify ownership of JIRA issues.

Actually I suppose that currently it's not possible, so here's a feature request: create function mostWorkLoggedAfter().

Hi Silver,

You are right. This is currently not possible. The problem is that JQL functions are designed to search issues and not users. You can have functions returning users but you can only use them in searches like this:

assignee = mostWorkLoggedAfter(-2w, TEST-123)

Is that what you are looking for? I suppose not!

I imagine this function could be used similarly to workLoggedAfter(), eg. issues in mostWorkLoggedAfter(-2w, CURRENT_USER)

Ah ok. Can you raise a support request at https://j-tricks.atlassian.net/browse/JQLT? Provided there is enough interest, we might work on that :)
