JQL find issues where custom filed has default value - multi line text


I need a way to match issues that still contain the default value configured for a custom field, via JQL

The field is a multi-line text field.

Multi-line text fields use the Free Text Searcher. So you can search for a longish string or maybe use \n for the new lines in your JQL?

E.g. JQL

myfieldname ~ "Long string here that is unique"


myfieldname ~ "First line\nSecond line"

Hi @Matt Doar [ServiceRocket]

How do we have wildcard search for the custom field? I would like to perform substring and trim operation/s for the value populated onto a custom field. Is that feasible please?
