I want to make a search engine that will always search keywords in a specific project

Hi,

I'm part of an organization that has several projects under it's umbrella, and I want to create a custom search engine in Chrome to search my organization's projects.

I know to use this URL for creating the search engine:
https://jira.example.com/jira/secure/QuickSearch.jspa?searchString=%s

However, I want to make it such that whenever I run the search, it will default to searching within a specific project, without me needing to adjust that parameter every time I run a search.

Is this possible to do?

Thank you!

https://jira.example.com/issues/?jql=project=ABC and text ~ "%s"

Use that.  Replace ABC with your project key.

Thank you for your help! 

Because I'm using this to create a custom search engine in Chrome, it ended up as this for the URL:

http://jira.example.com/issues/?jql=project%20%3D%20ABC%20AND%20text%20~%20%s

S
ince the URL encoding needs to read spaces ( ) as %20. I am now able to run queries from my browser in JIRA directly. 

Thanks!
