Jira Query for hyphenated words

There are many words which can have a hyphen, a space or be a full word. For example:

  • Wifi
  • Wi-fi
  • Wi fi

I am attempting to figure out if there is some kind of wildcard search that will allow me to capture all three as a result when I do a search in Jira. Using * search (for example, searching "wi*fi" returns either Wi-fi or Wi fi but wont return the full version Wifi

Is there a simple way I can get all three variants of Wifi to return using a simple wildcard search?

Hi Chander, that link seems to be broken however I believe I have already looked at the intended page and it did not. I attempted the various wildcard searches documented but none of them returned all 3 results.
