How to search for text in all our jira-tickets?

Is it possible to search for a text for eg "I think this is a bug" among all jira-tickets?

If yes, how do you do that?

Hi @fredand44 

In Advanced Search (JQL), try:

text ~ "I think this is a bug"

"text" searches in all text fields.

Hello,

Thanks for your reply.

I actually does not get any hits when I am using the Advanced search either when the text in a comment is in italic.

If you guys have the time to try it out, does it work for you?

Best regards

Fredrik

Hi @fredand44 

If I do paste for example this string in italics:

text ~ "sometext"

in the grey search box, I do get this string, which does not work:

text ~ "text ~ \"sometext\""

yes, that is correct. But if I paste:

text ~ "sometext"

into "Current Search" under "Issue" menu (and have Advance instead of Basic chosen), then it works just fine, at least for me on Jira Software on Server 8.20.1.

hey @fredand44 

Which text field are you trying to search via JQL ?

Vishwas

Hello Vishwas,

I was actually hope it was possible to search in:

Description

Comments

But it seems like if the text you search for is in italic, at least n the a comment, then the basic search field miss those occurences.

Best regards

Hi @fredand44 

We can search like this:

for summary JQL is

Summary ~ "I think this is a bug"

and like text ~ "I think this is a bug" searches for all text across instance.

Regards,

Vishwas

Its seems like the search does not work if the text you search for is in italic.

Strange!

It seems like this is acctually doable from the search-field.

Best regards

Fredrik

...but not if the text you are searching for is in italic. Very strange!
