Why is a text search query for a phrase returning results for each word in the phrase, new in Cloud Edited

Before migrating to our new Jira cloud the JQL shown below would only return Jira issues that matched the complete phrase "Trigger a tax calculation" . 


project = "CONNECT" AND text ~ "\"Trigger a tax calculation\""  ORDER BY updated DESC


After migrating to Jira Cloud the same filter is returning all Jira issues that simply have the word "Trigger" or "calculation" rather than the more restrictive set that contains only the exact phrase.

I have reviewed this help article and it appears my syntax is still supported. Let me know why you think a phrase search is no longer working.

Thank you,
