Custom field and JQL case sensitive searches



Can I search JQL with case insensitive?

I can search for the exact match only and it's case sensitive , I'd like to be able to search for "Hello" and "hello" also..


Is that possible?

Hi @yonimoses 

All query terms in JIRA are not case sensitive as mentioned here. 

There is a workaround discussed here which might help you

Hi @yonimoses , 

Out of box, with normal JQL you cannot do it . But there is way you can achieve it by using the OR function . But you have to try and and work on the probabilities, over the combinations of words. 

Say for example you need to search for the ticket where you have a word "document" in the description , So you JQL will go like this , 

project = "XXX" AND (description ~ Document OR description ~ document)

Replace "XXX" with your concern project name 

This will help you find the ticket whose description has the word Document or document in project XXX. 

Likewise you can keep adding the OR statement. 

Hope this helped you.
