How to find issues containing the word or group of characters XYZ ?

I have an issue with summary = "aldaqtds54 PSU failure".

In search with the criteria : summary ~ tds54

It doesn't return the issue.

Why is that ? Isn't the operator ~ means "contains" ?

That is because ~ is not a full regular expression. Your query looks for the word tds54. Even if you added the wildcard *, "tds54*" it would find words beginning with tds54. It is illegal to put the wildcard characters at the beginning of the pattern as noted in the link below.

I am not sure a soundex (fuzzy search) would match either. In that case, the term would be "tds54~"

Hi Barthelemy,

you have to query this way: summary ~ "tds54"

Best regards
