Can't manage to filter with JQL with a text that contains "-"

It seems I can't make a JQL query where I search text like "DE - "

 

Any workaround  ?

I had to do a little digging on this, but try using \\ (double back slash) before the hyphen

"DE \\-"

Hello

Thanks for your answer but I keep getting the same error message

"Unable to parse the text 'DE -' for field 'summary'"

or

"Unable to parse the text 'DE - ' for field 'text'."

you can also use the tilde to search text across fields

text ~ "DE - "

Hi Anna,

Try something like this:

project = ABC and summary ~"DE-"

Can you share your exact query? I had no problem executing this one.
