In Jira Issue navigator, in search issues, I am trying to filter all the "in progress" work items which have the exact title "Content Development - Release Note". However, i am getting the results with mixed answers like "Content Development - Patch Release Note" and "User Assistance Content Development - Release Note".
I am using Jira Cloud. Please let me know if there is any pattern in JQL which I can use for my scenario.
As you're on Jira Cloud, the correct answer is to get an app that provides JQL extensions you're looking for.
With standard JQL, you can only get a list of issues and export them to Excel for further processing. This works if you want to do a one-off analysis. If your use case is more dynamic than that, look beyond standard Jira.
Standard JQL doesn't easily allow it, but you can quickly find the results using our professional indexing service JQL Search Extensions
Using this query will show exactly the issue you want with the status “in progress”
issue in regex("summary", "^Content Development - Release Note.*") and status = "In Progress"
Check out the documentation for more examples.
I hope this helps!
if you're open to solutions from the Atlassian Marketplace, you can perform this filter easily in JXL for Jira.
JXL is a full-fledged spreadsheet/table view for your issues that allows viewing and inline-editing all your issue fields. It also supports column sorting and filtering, just as you may be familiar with from Excel or Google Sheets. As this filtering uses a different architecture and technology from JQL, exact matches work as expected:
See here for the full syntax. It's worth noting that JXL can do much more than that: From bulk editing via copy/paste, to inline issue creation, to support for issue hierarchies, issue grouping, and sum-ups. Disclaimer: I work on JXL :)
Hope this helps,
