Enable CONTAINS operator or autocomplete at HTTP feeded custom field

Hello to all,

in our JIRA I have defined JSON Request Custom Field custom field (it is provided by HTTP Feed Custom Fields). When searching for issues (Issues > Search for Issues) using this field, only operators

  • =
  • !=
  • is
  • is not
  • in
  • not in

are available. Operator CONTAINS (~) cannot be used and filter does not suggest any values with autocomplete function in Advanced search form. In Basic search form I can select from list of available custom field values. The problem is there are a lot of values, values are similar to each other and therefore autocomplete or LIKE operator would fit our user needs.

Search template for my custom field is JSON Request Custom Field Searcher. As far as I understood, I need to use Free Text Searcher to enable CONTAINS operator. Does it mean I cannot use JSON Request Custom Field to be able to search with CONTAINS operator? Well, if so, is there a way to turn autocomplete on?

Custom fields from third party plugins mostly come AS IS with own searchers (or inherited searchers). Anyway, if the seararcher option for needed field doesn't exist you can always add feature request here https://github.com/AndreyVMarkelov/andreymarkelov-atlas-plugins-requestedfields/issues. Or you can extend the plugin or order the extention as the license for this plugin seems to be BSD and source code is open and availible

Hi Leoš,

I don't remember why I have included only one searcher. I will look at maybe it is easy to add freetext searcher.

Hi Andrey,

it would be great if you add it :-) As I understood, HTTP Feed Custom Fields does not contain free text searcher, neither supports any renderer.
