JIRA wild-card text search not working

 

4 answers

If I understand this right, there was a bug in Lucene that was fixed recently, and may result in the wildcard dropping from the query. The page lists a workaround.

Thanks for the info. However, this bug seems to only apply to wildcards within phrases, with the workaround being to split into individual terms. My search is already using individual terms, not a phrase.

I want to use an Advanced Search such as the following:  text ~ "filename_*.h" 

I expect this to find any issues that mention the source files:  filename_1.h, filename_2.h, filename_3.h, etc. However, this is not working. I can change the * to a 1, 2, or 3 and find issues, but any variation of the wild-card version I've tried does not return any results.

Any ideas why this doesn't work?

I'm encountering the same problem. Did something recently break? What version of JIRA are you using? (I'm running JIRA 7.0.2)

UPDATE: I just noticed that my wildcard searches are only broken on hyphenated words. They work fine on words that have no hyphens. I wonder if the underscores in your words are what is causing your problem. I have submitted a bug report (https://support.atlassian.com/servicedesk/agent/GHS/issue/GHS-59251).

I am using version 6.4.12. I agree that it has something to do with special characters. I've encountered similar problems with periods that separate hierarchical names.
