JIRA search for component fiels

Dear all,

Is there anyway to search if [component] field contains a word in JIRA?

I tried to use ~  , but it doesn't applicable for component field.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @funny ,

Wild card search is not supported by components field. You will have to install plugins like JQL Tricks, JQL Booster Pack 

These have function like componentMatches(regex)

Please note: by Default when you type "component in (Ji" you get all the available options starting with Ji. You can just select the required ones

component in ("Operation")

@Gokaraju gopi  thanks for your help, yet it doesn't work.


~ does not work for list fields(where you can add multiple options) like component. It only works for text fields such as summary, description

You need to use in for list fields. Its not working because Operation is not the complete word from component field options. So if you add full text then it will work

component in ("Operation xxxxxx")

@Gokaraju gopi  thanks for your detailed explanation.

My pain point is that there are many words containing "Operation" in [Components]. Therefore I am looking for a way to fuzzy search in JIRA for this field, instead of populating all the words.


I am not sure how many word you have but you can always add multiple words. That can be the only way for list type fields

component in ("Operation xxxxxx", "Operation one", "Operation two")
