JQL - componentMatch does not work with number + *

Hi team,

 

One of our user request that "componentMatch" does not work properly.

Below are the JQL that my user used.

project = "Q Event 16" AND component in (componentMatch("55UJ5*"))
project = "Q Event 16" AND component in (componentMatch("55UJ6*"))
project = "Q Event 16" AND component in (componentMatch("55UJ7*"))

All three JQL queries show same result, so it looks like number + * does not work properly.

Our component looks like this "55UJ650V-ZA.AEUYLHX_SW_VAL(1)_Software_1610-00068".

 

Does anyone know why it works like this, and how to get proper result?

Thank you.

See the documentation for ScriptRunner. You should be using Java regular expressions.

If you want to match a beginning of string you should use:

componentMatch("^55UJ5.*")

You can use this online tester to check your regular expressions.

Exactly right, thanks Petar. Unfort it's a bit confusing because it's different from the wildcards used elsewhere in Lucene.
