JQL search - long string with special characters



I am trying to list the issues by project = foo and category matching the below (long) string. Can someone help me with the right search expression?

project = foo AND category = "foo bar blah blah (12345) / search word (word1) / None"

Hi @vijay jayaraman,

welcome to this community.

What exactly do you want to do?

You can search for that string exactly as you did. But please have this in mind.

The category is an attribute of a project. If the project foo has the category "foo bar blah blah (12345) / search word (word1) / None", it will give you all issues from that project, but it will be same if you search only for the project or only for the category.

If the project foo does not have the category "foo bar blah blah (12345) / search word (word1) / None", there will be no result, because it does not fit together.

If you want both, the issues from project foo and all issues from projects with that category, you have to use the OR operator instead of the AND operator.
