Operator ~ is not supported in JQL searches

Hi All,


I'm writing a small plugin, and i've used TextCFType.

When I'm searching for the values in JQL, i can use the = operator, but when trying the ~ operator I'm getting the The operator '~' is not supported by the XX field.

Any ideas why?

Go to custom fields, then edit custom filed from gear icon, then check for Search Template of TextCFType to be set to Free Text Searcher.
