It’s fairly easy to create a URL which does a search for “bugs reported by firstname.lastname@example.org“. Whoever clicks it, you get the same thing – all bugs reported by that particular user. But you can also create a URL which does a search for something like “bugs reported by the user running this search”. This means you can share it with others, and have them find the bugs which apply to them.
This is done with “pronouns”. These only work with boolean charts (bug). The left hand side of the chart can be any field which expects an email address. The operator must be “is equal to” or “is not equal to”. The right hand side then can be of the following values: “%reporter%”, “%assignee%”, “%qacontact%”, or “%user%”. These do exactly what you might expect.
- open bugs reported by you but assigned to someone else
- open bugs assigned to you
- open bugs assigned to their reporter
