Hi @Farhaad_n ,

the field organization only supports the operators "= , !=, IN, NOT IN" in JQL. Unless you find an app that is introducing new functions to use within JQL searches, I'm not sure how you can perform a wild card field card search on this. You could think about finding a workaround using a text custom field filled with the organization and using the contains operator ~ and even combine that with a wild card parameter.

Hi @Max Foerster - K15t , 

Thank you for your reply,

Can you please help me find any add-on for doing this?

Hey @Farhaad_n,

start with a simple search on the marketplace and work your way through the available apps. I guess you will find a few apps that introduce new functions that may be helpful. Start from here: Atlassian Marketplace search "JQL extension" 

But you don't necessarily need an app for my suggestions. Just play around with automation rules and custom fields, maybe that's already solving your issue. 

Best, Max
