How to fuzzy match a summary string containing a digit

I have two JIRA issues, with summary strings: "FOOBAR_STAGE" and "FOOBAR2_STAGE".

If I run this filter:

    summary ~ "STAGE"

The first issue is returned, the second is not. Is there any way I can construct a query to return both results?

Hi Chris,

You may try searching using the JQL query below:

summary ~ "FOOBAR*"

Using "FOOBAR*STAGE" should also work according to our documentation, but I have tested it and it did not work. sad I will link this post to one of the bugs we have raised for problems related to the behaviour of the CONTAINS (~) operator:

Thanks for the suggestion Danilo. I'm not sure it's going to work in my case, because I want to match all of FOOBAR_STAGE, FOOBAR2_STAGE, BARFOO_STAGE, BARFOO2_STAGE etc.

Also, because it's the summary field, it's in the middle of a string such as "Job called BARFOO2_STAGE failed"

Best regards,
