How to search by title in jira advanced search?

A simple jira advanced search can be something like:

text ~ "feature-55" AND type in ("New Feature","Improvement") ORDER BY created DESC

However, I think the string feature-55 will be searched in the complete jira issue. Is there a search query through which I can only search for the text in the title of the issues?

Hi @prasannjeet 

Yes. As bellow:

Summary ~ "featur-55"

Hi Ashkan,

I have a use case. I want to search for Jira tickets that have 'ABC' or 'XYZ' in titles. It's not necessary to have both 'ABC' and 'XYZ' in the same ticket title. Is there a search syntax that will give me all the possible tickets that have 'ABC' or 'XYZ' in titles? Thanks in advance.

@Souro , you can use the OR function in your search query, e.g.

Summary ~ 'ABC' OR Summary ~ 'XYZ'

I'm getting the following error

The text query '[FE]' for field 'summary' is not valid: probably your range query is incorrect.


I'm searching:

summary ~ '[FE]' AND project = XXXXXXX AND issuetype = Bug AND status in ("To Do", "To do") order by created DESC

@Cesar Arias Canto unfortunately that's a known issue with JIRA filters and there's no apparent workaround. See

This worked for me:


summary ~ "\"[FE]\""
