Searching data in custom fields (label type)

Hi all, I created a custom field for issues which has the labels format.

I am trying to do a search for a particular label.

Show all tickets which has XXX label. This wouldn't be exact.



For example: Ticket has label ABC1234


I want to search for 1234 and see that ticket on the results


I tried fieldname IN 1234, that did not work

Hi @Felipe,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community.

JQL only allows you to search on whole words, except for fuzzy searches. You would need an app that allows you to do partial searches. We use Scriptrunner which allows me to do a query like this:

issueFunction in issueFieldMatch("project = JRA", labels, "f_*")

There are a couple of apps on the Marketplace that allows you to extend JQL, and I bet they allow partial searches too.

Thank you!
