FishEye: search for quoted string in content

In FishEye (2.7.14), when I search content for "blah" (including the double quotes), FishEye will give me all matches for blah (with or without double quotes before/after the string). Is there a way to let FishEye give only matches for "blah" literally, so only files which contain the string surrounded by double quotes?

The EyeQL that corresponds to my search is:

select revisions from dir "/" where (is head and content matches "\"blah\"") order by date desc group by changeset return path, revision, author, date, csid

Regardless, I still get all matches of files which do not have the quotes ...

Is this a bug?

Filed issue with Atlassian: FE-4202 - Cannot search for quoted string in content (quotes are ignored)

Try this:

select revisions from dir "/" where (is head and comment =~ ".*\"blah\".*" order by date  desc  group by changeset return path, revision, author, date, csid

Doesn't work (I added 'content' before the =~, otherwise I get an 'unexpected token' error):

Search error:

error parsing query: expecting "matches", found '=~'

And if I use content matches ".*\"blah\".*", that never matches.

I am sorry, you need comment. I accidently removed it while typing. Try now, I have modified the answer.

Ok, that works for commit messages. But I need this for "content" search, not for searching commit messages (which is why I specifically mentioned "search ... in content" in the question).

Still, thanks for taking the time to try and answer my question.

btw, it looks only at commit messages.
