Hi @p,

You can use the following JQL to find that issue:

summary ~ "XX_54_GCSE1234_TEST"

Since the Summary (issue title) field uses a "like" search (ex: "~") you can also search for part of the string you provided.  Example:

summary ~ "XX*"
summary ~ "TEST"

The fuzzy search doesn't always return what you want though, so you'll have to play with it if the above doesn't help.  I don't know much about the logic when special characters are present.  Maybe someone else in the Community can comment further.

Also, you can't use "=" with the Summary field.

Hope this helps,

Rachel Wright
