I want to search for SET-NIT-* on jira


I want to search for SET-NIT-* on JIRA (in order to search for SET-NIT-24, SET-NIT-34 and so on)


But considering that SET and -  are reserved words JIRA is not allowing me to do this.

Double keyword makes applying escape characters even more challenging.

Can anyone please help me?

I take it this text is a reference to some other system, and it's a plain text field.  

text ~ "SET-NIT"

works fine for me

Hi @Nic Brough [Adaptavist] Can you try this scenario and let me know what happens. 1. Create two issues 2. First issue add in description SET-NIT-AB 3. Second issue add in description SET-NIT-12 4. Search for text ~ "SET-NIT" This returns only one issue. Is it same for you? Rahul

Nope. Two issues come out. Jira 6.4

SET-NIT* or SET-NIT-* on the other hand - nothing.

(as per your original question)
