Looking for help with the correct syntax on using a wildcard in the Label field.
JIRA version: 6.2.2
I have close to fifty(50) unique labels I'm using to categorize JIRA tickets based on specific tasks. The nomenclature is ES_TaskName. Here are examples of some of my (50+) labels:
This is part of my JQL but includes close to 50 labels so the list is long.
AND labels = ES_APPLICATIONS
OR labels = ES_MOBILE_APPS
OR labels = ES_LOGIN
OR labels = ES_NAVIGATION
OR labels = ES_REPORTING
OR labels = ES_SERVICE
OR labels = ES_SUPPORT
The issue I'm experiencing is my query is truncating over half of my "OR labels = ES_TaskName" causing inaccurate results when running the query. I am unable to find documentation stating a limit to query length but the symptoms suggest it's a length issue. As a result, I'm trying to us a wildcard like [label "ES_"] but every wildcard I've tried [label *ES_*] , [label ~ "ES"] , [label ~ ES_"] , [label = "ES_"] , ["may contain"] does not work.
Any help is much appreciated.
This is possible with third party add-ons. Take a look at the post titled How to search for labels with a wildcard as well as the post titled How to use wildcards for label field for more information.
In addition, please vote on the Suggestion titled All text field types should support wildcard searching in JQL and Search for Labels using wildcards. Add your use case to the comments to add impact to the issues.
