How to serach multiple External issue ID from bugzilla

Wondering how to search for multiple bugs that are imported from Bugzilla to Jira, I know there is search like this but it is kind of pain to use OR, Bugzilla uses comma separator :

"External issue ID" ~ "11111 OR 22222 104229 OR 3333"

Imagine searching for 100s bug, anyone knows how to search that?

You can use the below one.

"External issue ID" IN (111, 222, 333, ... so on)

But if the list is higher you may have to find the other filtering criteria such as 

  1. Creation date
  2. label values like 'bugzilla'
  3. or any other field values which makes this set of issues unique.


Thanks, but it does not work for me sad getting the following error msg!

The operator 'in' is not supported by the 'External issue ID' field.
