I wan to to filter stories that have the word Launch, inside parenthesis like this "(Launch)" but don't want to get in the results something like this "-launch" or "/launch"
Hi @Steven Lee
As far as I know, Jira doesn't "index" certain special characters, which means that you can't search for them in JQL; see here:
Special characters aren’t stored in the index, which means you can’t search for them.
As a workaround, you may want to have a look at JXL for Jira. It's a full-fledged table/spreadsheet view for your issues that allows you to quick-filter your issue list by any field, including their summary, and because the way its search algorithm works, you can search for any character; in your specific case, you would have to search for
including the quotation marks.
This is how it looks in action:
(Disclaimer: I work on JXL :))
Hope this helps,
