How To Search For JIRA Field With Wildcard

We are attempting to filter the JIRA "Labels" field (in Stories) for labels that begin with a specific text string "PRD-ST".   The existing labels look like "PRD-ST-149232" or "PRD-ST-149548" and numerous other strings not starting with "PRD-ST".  

What is the correct syntax to search only for labels that begin with the specific text string "PRD-ST"?

Your help is appreciated.

Hi William,

JIRA does not support wildcard searches on Labels field.

However, if you are using ScriptRunner for JIRA, you can use the solution documented at,fieldname,regexp)

Can you please try the below query?

issueFunction in issueFieldMatch("", labels, "PRD-ST*")
