Searching partial text in Jira summary field

Hi ,


I wants to search the String "[XXX]" in sub tasks BUT I wants in result list only sub tasks which contain [XXX] and don`t wants to recieve sub tasks which contain only XXX 


This is the query I wrote , but I also sub tasks which contain only XXX without [] :

issueFunction in subtasksOf("issuetype = Story") AND summary ~"\\[XXX\\] "


Any idea what I need to fix ?

You have to use script runner plugin for searching for partial text (regex) as JIRA doesn't support it out of box thus "summary ~"\\[XXX\\] "" won't work in JQL as partial text search isn't supported by JIRA, rather use script runner plugin as provided in the links below.

To find all issues where the description contains a ABC0000 where 0000 is any number, you could use:

issueFunction in issueFieldMatch("project = JRA", "description", "ABC\\d{4}")
