We're using JIRA across our organization and love it. The main search query is really useless though and we can't make sense of its logic. Feels like when entering a search term in the main search field in the header, priority should be given to:
I know JIRA lets you do a detailed search, but right now the default search is so bad it works 0% of the time without adding search parameters.
Any insights as to plans to make this work better?
I don't have any answer for you regarding planned quick search changes.
Unlike you, I find the quick search to be useful, although, as you note, the response often requires additional parameters to narrow to what I want. Your question made me go look at the documentation. I didn't realize if the quick search has a project key as the first word, it will scope the search to the specified project.
I can see where your specified search order would be useful in certain circumstances. Personally, for me, I don't think it would be a better default than the current settings. I'm almost always looking either across the whole enterprise or looking at history when I use general search. When I want to look at issues assigned to me, or open issues, I'm usually looking at a dashboard or kanban board.
The current search is really bad with the word stem issues. At the very least you would expect a product like this to support better .*substring.* to work. But the tokenizing, word boundary stuff in JIRA search is really terrible.
So if you are searching for parts of a link you are pretty much out of luck. It would really help if jira full text search was working better.
