Is there a search that can be done to find duplicates in a text field? I need to see anywhere that Text 3 has a duplication across the platform. It confuses our intake and I am looking for an easy solution before we can get our autmation in place or for anytime someone does a manual clone/link. Not searching one by one, but a general search to pull up any and all Text 3 fields with a duplicate.

Hi @Melissa Stump

I'm not quite sure what you mean by duplicates. Are you looking for cases where multiple issues that have the same text field value? Or are you looking for issues where text is duplicated within the text field of an individual issue (like "Hello Hello")?

Perhaps you could provide an example.

Best,

Hannes

Thank you for pointing this out. I am looking for the same value in Text 3 in multiple stories.

Not looking for repeating values within the same story.
