Bitbucket Search not returning results as expected

Within the file saved in a BitBucket repository there is a line that shows as follows 

"AS V_IVRCompleteCount"

if the criteria for my search is as follows it does not return any results 

  • V_IVRComplete
  • IVRCompleteCount
  • V_IVR
  • IVR AND Complete
  • V_ AND IVR
  • IVR Complete
  • IVR AND Complete AND Count

What does work

  • V_IVRCompleteCount
  • IVRComplete


It is my expectation that all of this would work in the search and the search functionality is one of the main reason we chose Bitbucket but it doesn't appear to be working as expected.

Looking at the bitbucket-search index, it seems that the content field (where the indexed code is stored) it seems that the Standard Tokenizer is being used (


I've been able to replicate the same type of behavior where there's periods in the text - eg: - I can find "" but can't find ""

It seems these JAC's are relevant, so I suggest voting/watching
