How to use wildcards with components in my JQL ?

 JQL for my filter is:

project = test and component ~ "Api*"

This does not work . Is there any other way to use it? Please help as grouping my bugs and creating filters has become difficult.

Hi ;)
You can use a FREE app called JQL Booster Pack and use the componentMatches() JQL function to get the requested functionality



• Find issues in components that their name start with 'Database':

component IN componentMatches("Database.*")

• Find issues in components that their name contais 'screen':

component IN componentMatches(".*screen.*")

• Find issues in components that their name end with 'Core':

component IN componentMatches(".*Core")

It was at the time I wrote my comment ...

The following works for me:

component IN componentMatch("Api*")

Thanks! This works well.

I get

Unable to find JQL function 'componentMatch()'.

What plug-in did you use?

Wild card searching is not supported by default for components. You will have to use a plugin like JQL Tricks
