Incorrect search result for some texts

Hello,

 

I'm writing about search issue in JIRA 6.1.

 

When I'm starting to search for issue with examples criteria below,

1. issuetype = "ABC" AND text ~ "QC5F"

2. issuetype = "ABC" AND text ~ "Treethawat"

 

Regarding the first search, I got 3 issues as result.

But for the second search, I got 5 issues as result.

 

Those issues contained a string as "Treethawat/QC5F" or "Treethawat / QC5F" in a description or some fields.

I have no idea why the first query doesn't show 5 issues the same as the second query?

 

Thanks

This might be due to the "word stemming" which is used by the JIRA search. See this for details - https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Performing+Text+Searches#PerformingTextSearches-Wordstemming

 

Hi Boris,

 

Thanks for your quick response.

But if I search as follows:

  • issuetype = "ABC" AND text ~ "QCCF" : Result is correct
  • issuetype = "ABC" AND text ~ "ABCF" : Result is correct
  • issuetype = "ABC" AND text ~ "QC3F" : Result is incorrect
  • issuetype = "ABC" AND text ~ "AB4F" : Result is incorrect

There might be something wrong with digit rather than string while doing search.
