Bitbucket Code Search EXACT method call

We are currently using this beta feature in our repos. However, I can't search for a method exactly like foo('a',b,c). I believe this is due to the stripping of all special characters in the search query that the doc states. However, this isn't very useful if I get every instance of foo but not the params with it. Is there a way to do this that I am not seeing? 

Thanks!

Still a problem 2 years later. Bitbucket's search is useless due to character stripping. Who approved this?

Same problem for me.  Seems your understanding is correct and there's no way around it :(

Same problem here. Without the ability to search for an exact phrase, the search tool becomes more or less useless, IMHO.

Same problem here.  Why doesn't it allow for exact match search or regex support like confluence?

use less search in bitbucket. At least they should have given some escape character.

I want to search item-slot but getting 100 pages having itemslot.

Same problem, guess no one at BitBucket actually seems to use this functionality otherwise I'd presume they would see the flaw in the search and fix it.
