Prescibe search - multiple fields

I'd like to set up a search so that it's simpler to use for end-users and management.

For example, to search a single text term in multiple fields requires inputting a term like:

project = PROJECTNAME AND description ~ textsearch or summary ~ textsearch or comment ~ textsearch

to search for the term "textsearch" in each of those fields.  

I'd like to save a filter in such a way that the search term can be applied to multiple fields and users can be presented with a simple search box for example.

Is there a way to do this? I was thinking dashboard but can't see a way to pre-define everything but the search term itself, it all looks like prebuilt searches.

Hi Mark, 

Not sure that can be done. But what about going ahead and creating filters with the textsearch options already populated - especially if they are the same value for each field. Then the user just selects which filter to run. They should add the Project on the end if that makes it more flexible. 

Sure, then with the sample text being something like "REPLACE-WITH-SEARCH-TEXT". 

But seems like that would be a great dashboard to allow searches across multiple fields like that.

Yes, that would be really cool. You might open a support ticket with Atlassian to get that on their radar/roadmap.
