JQL Understanding of Escaping

Hallo everybody,

I read the documenation with care, but didn't get it really. So how is escaping working and how to use it? Is there a documentation with some examples or can you share some?

Would be really glad, thank you!

Hi @Hannes

Do you mean how to search for escape / special characters? 

Is there a specific scenario you're looking to resolve? 


Hi Ste,

maybe I just was confused by the documentation. So in my understanding I just need escaping when a special/reserved character is included in the string I'm searching for. So for example I'm searching for the string abc*de, I need to search for "abc/*de". Is this correct?

Some examples in the documentation looked like this: "\"test string\"". This was a little bit confusing. So for my understanding here I'm search for this string: "test string". So the " - signs are part of the string. Is this correct?
