Is issueFieldMatch() case-sensitive ?

Hi All,

When I run the following query it only returns tickets with "Error" in the summary field and not "error". I'm running Jira 7.3.8 on Postgre and Adaptavist Scriptrunner 5.2.2

issueFunction in issueFieldMatch('project=SD AND created>startOfDay()', summary, 'Error')

Tanx for looking

Yes, this is correct. I think it is case sensitive.



Thanks for the update Dyelamos.

I think it would be more useful if it was not case-sensitive.



Well not at all.

What if you are looking for a key for a project that was "KEY" for example. Would you want to fetch the issues that casually mention "key"? 

No. This is ASCII, there is a huge subset of characters to be used for a reason.

Thanks for the update.

How about adding adding an extra parameter to the method which would allow either a case-sensitive or non case-sensitive search?



That is an entire different matter. I actually agree that could be of use. Feel free to submit a feature request at
