Search bar vs. JQL filter - different results


I would like to create a filter that is based off a text in the summary:


Here's the interesting part.  If i use the search bar in the upper right of the Jira window, and enter that search criteria, i get multiple results, with no problem:


However, when i try to create a filter with the same exact criteria, i get nothing:


the JQL (for the above filter) is as follows

project = HEL AND summary ~ "FW: CSSP" ORDER BY created DESC


i cannot figure out why the filter will not work, yet the search bar has no problems

Thank you in advance!

Your first example is probably searching through all the text fields and not only the summary. Try this JQL:

project = HEL AND text ~ "FW: CSSP" ORDER BY created DESC

Note that I replaced "summary" with "text".

Thank you so much for your response.

I copied and pasted your suggested JQL string.  No luck.  I removed "FW:" from the search and left just "CSSP", still no luck.  got the "No issues were found to match your search" message again.

if I use "FW:" I get hundreds of results.  for some reason "CSSP" seems to be the issue.
