Search for an exact word commented by an specific user


I am trying to perform a search where I can check an specific comment made by an specific user. 

Bassically, I want the results to show me ONLY the issues that were commented by "user" with the text "ABC". In other words, a way to combine:

comment ~ "\"ABC\""


issueFunction in commented("by user") 


Is this possible?

I tried to combine them and it works for me. comment ~ "\"ABC\"" and issueFunction in commented("by user") 

Hi @Gabrielle Bautista [ACP-JA],

I does not work for me. Let me try to explain differently.


Imagine this scenario:

Issue 1:

  • UserA comments "ABC"
  • UserB comments "XYZ"


Issue 2:

  • UserA comments "XPTO"
  • UserB comments "ABC


So, I want to look for any issue that the UserA commented with the exact text "ABC".

In this scenario, just issue 1 matches my criteria and is the one I am looking for.


However, using the queries comment ~ "\"ABC\"" and issueFunction in commented("by UserA") combined, it brings me both issues as both have comments done by UserA and comments with the text ABC. 






Anyone has an idea of how we can do that? sad
