I don't think you're going to be able to search for a slash. This page doesn't include the slash as one of the special characters. I believe the standard Lucene indexer, which that page says JIRA uses, splits words based on punctuation. It treats the slash as punctuation and not searchable.
After 5 years I have a similar question .... but on confluence pages:
I want to search in confluence a string like: "Jupiter/v1.2" , (there are many of "Jupiter" occurrences (without slash) and I want to ignore those) ... My only solution is to export everything to PDF and search there ... but is ... not nice ...

https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirasoftwarecloud/search-syntax-for-text-fields-764478343.html "Search syntax for text fields"

http://lucene.apache.org/core/3_3_0/queryparsersyntax.html "Apache Lucene - Query Parser Syntax"
which, like the JIRA doc, lists the same reserved characters (which doesn't include slash).
