I have been havingno luck trying to get the following search to work:
reporter = me AND project != "Project A" AND summary ~ "\\[Name\\]" ORDER BY createdDate DESC
I get eleven tickets returned, but one of them does not have "[Name]", but it does have "name some other text" in the summary.
I've tried various combination, with/without //, no " etc, but most of those occurs in an error.
Any idea why the search above adds in the extra ticket?
The ~ text searches are "fuzzy" - it's finding something it thinks is similar enough to [name] that you might want to see it.
The problem with fuzzy text searches is that they do have a nasty habit of throwing up the odd googly ball. While you'd sort of expect a fuzzy search given "crat" to return thinks like "cat, chat, autocrat, cravat, etc", sometimes they'll chuck in "penguin" for no reason you can fathom!
https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirasoftwarecloud/search-syntax-for-text-fields-764478343.html is a good read if you want more detail on various searches.
