Search bar isnt´t working properly



In Jira there is ever present Search Bar which is great for fast search through system. Unfortunately the search logic really gets me.

Scenario number 1

We searched for certain Issues that belong to a specific delivery. However as you can see on first picture Search Bar isn´t capable to find any Issues with the specified string. As you can see, there are several Issues that contain this string in their summary.

Scenario number 2

I played with string a bit and figured out, there is a case which is able to find these Issues. However I don´t get why SearchBar is more successful when I give it LESS information.

I consider this as a bug which makes Search Bar unreliable feature.


Or is there something I can do with it?

Hi @Dominik Březina ,

I tried to create the same scenario. Initially I had the same issue as per your description, then, I performed a refresh of the page and it worked :


Could you try?

In my opinion is due to reindexing issue. Try to reindex your single project and try again
