How do I filter for parts of the FixVersion/s field?

It is possible to search for parts of what is written in the summary field (with ~). I want to do the same thing for the FixVersion/s field. Is this possible?

In general my concern is, that I have Releases that have a specific nomenclature and I want to filter for the issues that are subordinated, based on parts of this nomenclature. Is there a possibility to do this without the use of Add-ons/labels etc.?

According to 

The ~ character is not supported for queries with fixVersion.

But you can use fixVersion in situations like these:

fixVersion in ("3.14""4.2")


fixVersion = "hello"

Hope this answer your question!

This answers my question, but does not provide a solution. Too bad, that the Fix Version field cannot be accessed by the ~ character. This means there is no "Out-of-the-box"-Solution for just filtering for segments of the Release name, too bad, as Releases do not have any other attributes that can be filtered for.

the ~ can only be used in JQL for the fields that are defined as free text searchers, fix version is a select list field.

with scriptrunner you have a function that fits your needs

fixVersion in versionMatch("^RC.*") 

I guess the free addon SQL to JQL would work for you too (haven't try it)

Thank you for your answer. An addon sadly does not solve the problem, because it is not possible to intall them, even when they are free of charge, due to the Company's IT structure.

Ok, maybe you could do some workaround like copying the version value to a text field and filtering for this new field.

Yes, this was now the way to go. I wanted to avoid manual work, but unfortunately Atlassian does not provide an out-of-the-box solution (like in many other cases). Thanks for the support.
