Custom text field search via contains

The values of the custom text field should be format


(e.g. 0002345), which input by user.

I use the contains operator (~) and keyword (2345), the JQL is like

"field" ~ "2345"

No result is found. What is the problem?

JIRA doesn't support searching on part of the word unless the words are stemmed. Check out for more options on how text searches work.

The field has already enabled stemming, but it is not working. Seem the stemming only works with real words in languages.
