Filter that Contains a substring

Good day Community, 

I am looking to build a substring filter to be used on a Board by limiting the results specific to sting in a Label. 

As pseudo-code:

Select * from Project [project-list] where label contains ["xyz " or "xyz-"]

I am running into the issue that I am not able to find a function in JQL to support the "Contains" clause. I cannot implement a marketplace plugin and it has to be native to JIRA. 

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

Hey Eduard,

You are looking for IN. Check out Atlassian's Advanced Searching doc and mind the links on the right side.

I think what you're looking for goes something like:

project in (Project1,"Multiple strings in name",singleString) AND labels in (label1,"Label Two",andEtc)

Click into Advanced search and type it out / do not copy. Auto-suggest will not pick up multiple words if you do not lead with a quotation mark, this goes for field names and variables. Cheers!
