jira-python search_issues error

For some reason when I go through the code in the main jira-python documentation page to search for issues I always get a traceback with the following message:

AttributeError: 'dict' object has no attribute 'format'

Here is the code that results in the error:

from jira.client import JIRA

options = { 'server': 'https://jira.atlassian.com'}

jira = JIRA(options)

issues = jira.search_issues('assignee=admin')

This happens regardless of the user name referenced as assignee.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cannot find the answer for this neither. Any help would be great, thanks

maybe it was fixed already ? see https://bitbucket.org/bspeakmon/jira-python/issue/106/search_issues-not-working-after-update-to. i do not get error ( using version 0.31 ) :

from jira.client import JIRA
jira = JIRA(options={'server': 'https://jira.atlassian.com'})
issues = jira.search_issues('assignee=admin')
print issues

returns [] , which, it seems, is correct : there are no issues matching that JQL string - https://jira.atlassian.com/issues/?jql=assignee%20%3D%20admin
