Can anyone tell me how I can search for all labels containing a certain word?
labels = "word*" brings no result
labels ~ "word*" brings massage "is not supported by the field labels"
I want to be able to build filters for groups of labels, i.e. "linux-*", "macos* etc.
issueFieldExactMatch (subquery, fieldname, regexp)
Here's an example for searching labels:
issueFunction in issueFieldMatch("reporter = fred", "labels", "ie[8|9]")
This will locate my labels "ie8" and "ie9" but not give matches against "ie7" or "review" (etc)
can this issueFunction be used for identifying issues with labels starting with a specifies string "c/"?
I am using query
issueFunction in issueFieldMatch("", labels, "c/.*")
but I also get results where labels dont start with but only include the required string (e.g. "asc/something")
Can you please advise?
TLDR: Try '\\bc/.*' Use 'word boundaries' rather than 'start of line'. Following up on Mark's comment, the workaround is to use the word boundary pattern rather than the 'start of line/input' pattern. The labels field is treated as a string containing the list's elements, which is why the start of line pattern isn't matching what you'd hope. See here for more useful patterns: https://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/java/util/regex/Pattern.html
You can see how to use wild cards in JIRA in this page, however, I believe this will only work if the JIRA Indexing Language is set to other due to word stemming. You can see more about this in this other thread. If possible, try to set the indexing language to 'Other' in the General Configuration and re-index JIRA. Then, try to use wildcards again.
I hope this helps! :)
I could really use wirdcards too and the above suggestion didn't help me either. I've been using labels (tags) on other sites like Delicious and Flickr for many years and have developed a basic hierarchy to my tags. E.g. Actor:PM, Actor:Client, Value:Client_Engagement etc. I want to be able to search for all labels that start "X:" but without a wildcard that seems impossible in Jira.
I could really use this too! I just assumed I could use wildcards on labels but was disappointed to find it didn't work. I guess I can create an 'or' query that matches all the known label forms that the regex would match. I'll have to update it whenever a new label is created, but it's better than nothing...
