JIRA REST API: How to search groups by case insensitive value

Hello, everyone

How can I ignore case sensitiveness of query parameter during getting groups with the help /rest/api/2/groups/picker?

Right now:
/rest/api/2/groups/picker?query=aaa returns group Test aaa.
/rest/api/2/groups/picker?query=aAa returns group Test aAa.

What I need is - get both groups (Test aaa and Test aAa ) using rest/api/2/groups/picker?query=aaa or rest/api/2/groups/picker?query=AAA

Thanks.

Hi Natalia,

One thing you can do is change the = to a ~ which performs a fuzzy search.  If I search with the = sign I get one result:

{"header":"Showing 1 of 1 matching groups","total":1,"groups":[{"name":"aaa","html":"<b>aaa</b>","labels":[]}]}

When I use the tilde I get multiple results:

{"header":"Showing 3 of 3 matching groups","total":3,
"groups":[{"name":"aaa","html":"aaa","labels":[]},
{"name":"jira-administrators","html":
"jira-administrators","labels":
[{"text":"Admin","title":"Users added to this group will be given administrative access","type":"ADMIN"},
{"text":"JIRA Software","title":"Users added to this group will be given access to <strong>JIRA Software</strong>","type":"SINGLE"}]},
{"name":"jira-software-users","html":"jira-software-users","labels":
[{"text":"JIRA Software","title":"Users added to this group will be given access to <strong>JIRA Software</strong>","type":"SINGLE"}]}]}

For more information about searching in JIRA see the Search syntax for text fields knowledge base article.

Cheers,

Branden
