Selecting multiple components in a filter using wild cards Edited

The company I work for is upgrading JIRA to v7.3.6 from v6.3.12 and I'm having trouble finding answers to some questions. Here is my third (and I hope final) question:

Does version 7 support wild cards for selecting components?

Currently we have many Components that are owned by the same person, but she also owns some Components we don't want to see. This leads to cumbersome filtering such as
'component in componentsLeadByUser(username) and component not in ("a" "long" "list" "of" "components")'

All of the Components we want to see begin with 'ICC', but version 6 doesn't allow a filter like this: 'component in (ICC*)'

Is there some other method by which we can accomplish this?

Hello Bill,

I am using 7.3.0 and yes there is a method which supports regex -

In your case it can be 

component in componentMatch("^ICC.*")

i.e. filter on  components starting with ICC 

Excellent! Thank you. That's exactly what I was hoping for.
