Searching for multiple phrases

I want to set up a rule that searches card descriptions that have to have both phrases within a card to be flagged in the search. 

For instance, if the first sentence in this question was a card description, a search that would flag it would be "card descriptions" AND "phrases". I don't want a search that searches for only "card descriptions" or only "phrases", I want a search that requires both. 

Can this be done?

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

The most simple approach is to create an automation that says something like:

  • Trigger: When field changes
  • Condition: Description contains "bob"
  • Condition: Description contains "kate"

This rule will halt if bob or kate are not found in the description.

If you want to do it in JQL, then "Description ~ bob and Description ~ Kate" will find the issues.
