Jira issue filter contain text with partial words

On issue navigator there is a text box to filter issues. When I put an incomplete word (ie: inter) searcher show no results. There are issues with International word on subject.

Can I change the behaviour of this text box to allow incomplete word search?

Hi,

You can search using the CONTAINS operator. So for example:

summary ~ "inter*"

It does need speech marks or asterisk;

summary ~ inter

Should work fine as it automatically searches using the contains operator.

This is not working for me at all....

 

I have a Summary field that has the text of DEF_LIST_272 Foo Bar   

I want to find my issue by looking for 272

If I use summary ~ "272*"  I get no results back

In fact , if I use 

summary ~ "DEF_LIST_*"   I still get no results back

 

if I use 

summary ~ "DEF_LIST_272" I get results back.

 

So is there a real CONTAINS feature (i.e. contains the text, like GREP does)?

 

I was having he same issue with a simalare keyword search. This is what i had to do to make it work. It appears it doesn't match up if it has underscores (dont think that is the only case it cant find the keyword...). So i broke it up into several phrases. Also, the '*' doesn't seem to work even thou they say to use it on their guide...

change: Summary ~ 'DEF_LIST_272'

to: Summary ~'DEF_' AND Summary ~'LIST_' AND Summary ~ '272'

This will probably return you some extra items but will also bring back the results you are looking for.

It worked well for me !! I used  summary ~ "Text"
