Thanks for your answer, but it doesn't work for me. I've tried entering it but got this error:
`Error in JQL Query: Expecting either a value, list or function but got '['. You must surround '[' in quotation marks to use it as a value. (line 1, character 11)`
or like this:
Advanced search: Find all issues that contain the phrase Jira Software.
text ~ "\"Jira Software\""
Still no luck. The problem is the text I'm looking for is inside square bracket, from several links on Google, I've come to this topic

Sigh.
