Filter components with JQL

Hi there,

I want to query based on components matching with some string?

For example "component !~ 'string abc'" doesn't work for component.
And I want to use wildcards like "component !~ 'string *'"

Wich operators schould I use for "component DOES NOT CONTAIN 'string *'"? Are there other operators?

I'm using JIRA 6.0.3

The only operators you can use for component are =, !=, in , not in ,is and is not. So no chance out of the box.

Maybe you could use script runner plugin which has an additional JQL function

component in componentMatch("string.*")

i want to search for issues that have ONLY a certain component.

  1. no component -> issue is not in filter
  2. component is MBA and DV -> issue is not in filter
  3. component is MBA -> issue is in filter

is there a possibility to do that with a regex expression?

Long after the fact, this looks like it has the intended effect:

component in (MBA) AND component not in (DV)


Try if

Solves your problem, nevertheless it will let you run SQL functions using executeQuery()
