How to query Summary for EXACT match?

Sio I want an exact match when using the contains operator in a JQL query. 

 

key = TEST-36 AND summary ~ "__SPU__"

 

However this seems to return anything with SPU also regardless of capitalization!

 

How to get an exact match?

Hi Timothy,

this is not possible with current Jira versions. There is an open issue for that: 

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRASERVER-21372

Maybe you want to vote for it.

sigh...

OK, well since I am calling it from script runner then I can use a regex to make sure it matches. 

 

But it is really irritating that the issue referenced has been open for 7 years. This should be supported by JQL :-(

 

Thanks for the reply!

I have the exact requirement. Timothy, can you please elaborate on "calling it from script runner".

 

Thanks,

I love how this entire community is filled with posts that describe an issue, and they are all "solved" with the solution being "you can't do that".
