I am attempting to use the following JQL: "assignee = currentUser() OR assignee was currentUser()".
The equals currentUser works fine; the "was" currentUser gives me an error stating: A value provided by the function 'currentUser' is invalid for the field 'assignee'.
A member of my team has no problem using the JQL and receives the information without an error. Is there an addin I need for this JQL?
If it works for a colleague in the same system, but not you, then there's probably a difference in your permissions, or what you are selecting.
Does it work with "or assignee was <mark_entrekin>" first (your login obviously, not your name)? Does it work with other people's names? Finally, do you have the right to browse users?
Thanks for the quick reply Nic.
I can type in "assignee = xxx", or "is empty" or "in (xxx)" or others and it works fine.
Each of the options =, is..., in... or other options shows me the next possible entry (user, empty...) to continue or complete the statement/JQL
But, when I use or type in was: "assignee was currentUser" or assignee was in (currentUser))), I receive the error message stating invalid field for the field assignee.
sprint in (openSprints()) and (assignee = currentUser() or assignee was in (currentUser()))
If I enter:
sprint in (openSprints()) and (assignee = currentUser() or assignee was (currentUser()))
sprint in (openSprints()) and (assignee = currentUser() or assignee was currentUser())
I receive the error message "Operator 'was' does not support the list value '(currentUser)))' for field 'assignee'"
but the statement works for another person on the team. Same project/board.
If it is permissions, what permission would break it down to a coding level and/or options used?
