Strange SQL Query Issue

Last Modified: 2016-12-08
I am querying my company's Atlassian JIRA tracking system and reporting on trouble tickets by status assigned to the username "tristanboughton." I have tried writing and re-writing the query multiple times and get one of two results: (1) all tickets (regardless of whether or not they were originally) are displayed as assigned to "tristanboughton" or (2) all tickets, despite filters applied to only display issues assigned to "tristanboughton," are displayed, including ones assigned to other users.

What am I missing?
