I'm quite excited about the regex customfield and it's working fine so far. But recently I noticed that I can't search (or at least find) the values saved in that field (via quicksearch so jql query is like "text ~ "[searchstring]")
Searching directly in the customfield works with an exact string, using wildcards doesn't work at all.
And I can't find an option to administer the search template for that field.
Any ideas how to be able to achieve searchabilty for the regex cf?
You should be able to select between the exact searcher and a free text searcher from Administration > Issues > Custom Fields and select "Edit" for the regex CF. However these searchers work just like they do with a normal text field, so I'm not sure that wildcards will work with the free text searcher either. I believe the free text searcher will tokenize/split the value based on whitespace and punctuation so you can search for one of the resulting terms.
