I was trying to wrap my head around JQL and in particular I was trying to search by an "Epic Name"
For example I have an Epic with the name "Principal Person Data (PPD) Architecture/Management"
I tried to go to the "Advanced Search" and tried to type the following
"Epic Name" = "Principal Person Data (PPD) Architecture/Management"
Nothing comes up
I try to type the following
"Epic Link" = DATA-1
Then something pulls up, but this would require me knowing the exact issue ID.
So for example
Im trying to search by the highlighted title
I was hoping for a "fuzzy" search where I loosely know the term that should be used but I cant seem to get anything working?
Am I missing something really simple here?
Any help much appreciated!
Hi @Rodney Chan
Yes, and...to what @Mikael Sandberg suggests:
What type of projects are these epics in? Only company-managed projects use the field Epic Name, and so if some of your epics are in team-managed projects they would not be returned with that JQL. (Team-managed just use the summary field.)
Hi @Bill Sheboy
Thanks very much for the tip - I didnt even know there was a difference between company managed/team managed projects!
Hm ok I think I am starting to wrap my head around this more - I think I may have mixed up some terminology.
I assumed that the "Epic Name" is basically the highlighted field - But it looks like the following seems to work for what I am looking for
summary ~ "Principal" AND issuetype = Epic
Thanks for the help folks!
