I'm trying to create filters for confluence pages, but our naming scheme for Jira issues has made this a bit difficult
So this is what the title of an issue looks like, with animals subbed in
Cat Dog (Mouse Cow:Pig_Duck_01)
Cat Dog (Mouse Cow:Pig_Duck_02)
and so on
Now searching for "Pig_Duck_01" returns the first issue, but "Pig_Duck_0?" returns nothing. I've tried many combinations of *, ?,
matching a larger sequence and escaping the parens and more but cant seem to get it to match
im familiar with regex's and this is essentially what i want to match with the Jira search query
Cat Dog (Mouse Cow:Pig_Duck_\d+)
would be enough
If anyone can help me here or point out what im doing wrong, that would be great.
You cannot search on word parts, only on whole words.
You can use '?' for single character replacement or '*' for multiple character replacement. I would suggest your search include the entire 'word' in your example: Cow:Pig_Duck_0?
As J Thomas points out, the summary filed (which I believe you reference as title) has the ability to use the CONTAINS ('~') operator. So, a JQL query like this should work too: summary ~ "Pig_Duck_0*"
What sort of field is the 'title' that you're searching on? Do you get a ~ operator in the Advanced Search? This would search for issues containing the specified value so using just Pig_Duck_0 with no wildcard should work.
The Summary field uses the ~ operator so if I search my JIRA for issues where summary ~ leave I get issues where summary contains the word 'Leaver'.
