Jira description by field

I've gone over


Trying to do a search through Jira, I see several tickets open.  I then did a search for words in the ticket titles (Summary?) to get just the ones I wanted in one search.  In spite of the fact that I see several of the tickets in question open in browser tab, NONE of the search results yielded the open tickets when doing a search in a new browser tab.

Is there a way to search Jira tickets by title (summary?), description, body (activity?)...?

Hi @Michael Landen

You can search any free-text fields using contains which is the function "~" - so for example:

  • Description is the main body of the issue (description ~ "ABC")
  • Summary is the title (summary ~ "XYZ")

You can also search in all text fields if you use "text ~" rather than a specific field name.

Let us know if this doesn't resolve - and provide us the scenario, happy to provide more specific advice :)
