I have a some question about advance-query

I have a some question (about advance search mode)
sometimes, he find the word or not

ex) 'summary !~ "TEST"' : this means a 'Do not find the "TEST"' in the summary from the project issue

but, he search the 'test-1234', 'test-make123' N 'make-123-blah-blah-blah-test'

however, this pattern has not find 'test-make' , 'test@make' N 'take-make-1234'

(I solved, using this query 'summary !~"TEST*"')

for these reason, I don't understand this search logic

(the number has made a problem?)

Hi David Casey,

1. If the JQL is :-

  • summary !~ "test"

This mean that NOT find the "test" or SIMILAR TO "test".

So the result will have "test-1234" and "test-make123" since all these word are in a string whereby NOT "test" or SIMILAR TO "test"

However, this will not result "make-123-blah-blah-blah-test".

2. Regarding to the *, is a mutiple wild card search.

  • "test*"

This mean that it searches for 0 or more characters. For example test1, tester, test-123


3. with ~ is Fuzzy Search whereby it look for "test" or SIMILAR to "test"

  • ~"test"

this mean that it search the query CONTAIN "test" or SIMILAR to "test"

this will result "tests, tester, testing"

4. with the combination of Fuzzy Search and the Mutiple Wild Card Searc,

  • ~"test*"

this means that the it search query HAVE word "test*" or SIMILAR with word "test*"

this will result the result of "test1, test@123, test1245, test-213, test_q4q"

I hope this can clear your doubt.


Thanks
Cheers
KM
