BUG: Notification filtered as assigned, without being assigned

I got a notification about a comment on a thread I’m subscribed to.

The notification was added to the notification filter: Assigned
even though I’m not assigned to the issue.

I’ve been assigned to the issue before. I accidentally clicked on “assign yourself” in the top right corner of the page. I unassigned myself quickly right after it happened.

Since the Assignees section is empty, in the top right corner of the issue page.
There seems to be at least two reasons for why this bug might be occurring:

  • Notifications are filtered as “Assigned” forever, if one ever has been assigned to an issue.
  • It’s unexpected that one will unassign from an issue right after being assigned, therefore the unassignment didn’t complete, and I’m still assigned in the background, maybe it just removed my name from the Assignees section.

Either way, it should probably be investigated, because the Assigned filter should be reserved for issues where one currently is assigned.

Thanks for the feedback! I’ve taken your report and passed it along to the appropriate teams. Thanks again for reaching out :grinning:
