Search for text in the middle of another word

There is a word that I am searching for and I only get results of the word exactly as it is. For example when searching for "words" the results shows:

-Letters and words

-Big words

but the result does NOT show:

-Passwords

-Passwordish

I tried these:

1. text ~ X

2. customFields ~ X

Replace X with:

-words

-"words*"

-"words"

 

Need help on how to find "words" both as a stand-alone and as a part of another word (in the middle of another word). Thanks!

Hi Danny,

You can use wildcards to perform searches.

For example, if a issue has the summary "Email request enabled" and you perform the below query, it will return the issue.

summary~"%requests"

In the below documentation, there are more information, regarding to use wildcards.
