When a user performs a simple search for "searchtext", Jira performs a search with this JQL string:
text ~ "searchtext"
I have installed a plugin that also searches through attachments. Is it possible to configure a simple search to generate this JQL string instead?
text ~ "searchtext" OR issue IN havingAttachments("searchtext")
an approach via plugin: add a custom JQL function for your search param. Add a custom field, which stores the searchable content of the attachments (be careful of the file size). The custom JQL function should now search in the custom field. For some documentation read this lines.
Unfortunately I think you cannot add such subqueries you mentioned as a custom JQL function.
Hope this helps!
Hi Mirko, thanks for your suggestion. I don't think it will work in my case, because
It would be so much easier to just change the automatically created JQL query instead.
