Problem with setting a basicfilter with searching text in components

Dear Community,

 we have some problems with setting a filter, we have components with different endings for example [CN] or [IR]….

Unfortunately we couldn´t find any way to set a basic filter in JIRA.


Project = JIRA and Component contains “[CN]”


We want to set filter that we will get shown only components with the content [CN] an so on.

Hopefully you can help us to find the right way.

I'm afraid you can't do partial searches on select lists - you have to search for each option you want to include.

Yes, Nic is correct you cannot perform a partial search for components, but you can search for their complete names.

This is an example:
Project = JIRA and Component in  (“Full name [CN]”, "Full name [IR]")

You can find more details at: Advanced Searching - Component

Hi Daniel, thx for your post. But the problem is: We want to use the filterquery in a qickfilter on kanbanboard. We get the error message that we are using more than 255 letters. So we are searching for an other solution. Regards, Sven
