The operator '!~' is not supported by the 'text' field. - Need a work around

Any tickets I'm interested in/working start my geting assigned to me. Next I mark then (add comment) with enqueue_xxx to keep in a bucket where can see all unresolved I'm working regardless of current assignee.  Problem is search for new tickets assigned to me not in 'bucket'.  Have to pull all in bucket and manually compare all assigned to me (many in bucket may be assigned to me at point in time ...). 

text ~ enqueue_xxx  -- work great

text !~ enqueue_jd -- != invalid operator for type text

yes great answer.  Also determined that NOT text ~ enqueue_jd  works 

Sorry to revive this but this used to work but not anymore 

Also not working for me. NOT text ~ "example" always returns no matches.

@Ahmil Jilani found a workaround. I am using the specific field instead of text. In my case Summary so: NOT summary ~ "example" works

@Kevin Cauchi In my case I am searching comments. The following both have the same (wrong) results:

comment !~ "example"
NOT comment ~ "example"

In both cases they return issues where ANY of the comments to not contain "example". That is, it only filters out comments where ALL of the comments contain "example". However, I would like to filter out issues where ANY of the comments mention "example".

It would be so nice to have a simple negation operator, but it seems like that's missing.

If you add comment and then look for special comments use comment instead of text. And you can use !~ operator for comments:

comment !~ enqueue_jd
