Search for strings with @ character

Jeff Thomas Atlassian Team Nov 06, 2013

I'm trying to do a quick search for a string with an @ character, for example "@prod". The @ character seems to be removed from the query and only results with "prod" are included. Is there a way to escape or quote the "@prod" query to find results for that exact string?

I've tried:

  • "@prod"
  • '@prod'
  • \@prod

The @ characters are currently stripped out of content and diff text in FishEye search indices.

I have created https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/FE-4949 to change this behaviour however, since the @ character is commonly used now in languages such as java for annotations etc.
