I am attempting to perform the following JQL search in JIRA:
project = PROJECTNAME AND status = Open AND assignee in (username) AND comment !~ "generic"
My understanding of what this should return is: All open issues in project PROJECTNAME that are assigned to username that do NOT contain "generic" in the comments.
What I end up getting in the results are issues that both do and do not contain the text "generic". The results do correctly match the other criteria in the JQL statement.
I found another Answers post regarding similar behavior. However the result there was to save two separate filters and then join them together in third filter. While this is indeed a workaround, is this the expected functionality?
Based on the JQL documentation, my understanding of the
!~ operator in text searches is it performs a DOES NOT CONTAIN fuzzy search.
Is my logic incorrect here? I am missing something else?
Appreciate any help you can provide.
Actually that should work:
project = PROJECTNAME AND status = Open AND assignee in (username) AND comment ~-
"generic" (please pay attention to 'minus' sign befor 'generic' copy).
For details please check out https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirasoftwarecloud/search-syntax-for-text-fields-764478343.html ("Excluded term: -" section).
Yeah I'm having the same issues - not a single effort to reveal a result excluding a word has worked for me.
Examples that all fail:
project = HLP AND text ~ "create" -build
project = HLP AND text ~ -build
project = HLP AND text ~ "create" NOT "build"
project = HLP AND NOT text ~ "build"
and several others that should seem to work but don't according to the instructions here
