How do I view all of the issues that a certain user is watching?

Michael Figueroa June 19, 2019

I need to remove a user as a watcher in all excisting issues in jira. Is there a way to filter ALL issues that exsist and remove a user as a watcher from all of them (or the ones they're a watcher on at least?)

Try this JQL:

watcher = <username>

where <username> = the user in question.

@Kara Cardiff , you don't need to use the square brackets, just place the name in it, and Jira will understand :)
