1) I have a custom field of Free text field type (CField). For one of the issue custom field value is "ABC:2012.04.04".
If i use following JQL the issue is returned.
CField ~ "ABC:2012.01.04"
Using following query returns nothing. Any idea why?
CField ~ "ABC:2012.01.0*"
2) For some of the issues I have "..." in custom field value.
e.g. "6.30:2012.9.5.0 ...".
How can i search issues having "..." value?
I tried following queries, but no result.
CField ~ "..."
CField ~ "\\.\\.\\."
personally, I'd say this is a bug but I think Atlassian see it as a "undocumented feature". I think it's due to the search engine (lucene) and how it strips characters like '.' and ':' out of searches. Sounds like it won't be fixed.

Searching JIRA issues for special characters (in text fields) does not work, even if these characters have been properly escaped in a quick, simple or advanced (i.e. JQL) search.
