Swimlanes / Quick Filter - JQL [BE] not working | [FE] works

I'm trying to show the difference between Backend and Frontend Stories by starting the Stories with  "[BE] lorem Ipsum" or "[FE] lorem Ipsum" or "[Design] Lorem Ipsum". 
I also want to provide Quick Filters and Swimlane Queries with filtering options. 

Usage of:

Design -> summary ~ "\"[DESIGN]\"" <- works

Frontend -> summary ~ "\"[FE]\"" <- works

Backend -> summary ~ "\"[BE]\"" <- don't work

 Any Idea why [BE] as filter isn't working?

Hi @Martin , 


it might be because it's a reserved word, you can see the full list here :


Otherwise, I would advise using Components to show difference between Stories as it's way easier to use. Have you considered this ? 


Let me know if this helps, 



Hey thanks for your reply. 
Components we currently use for backend and frontend both ...and its growing, so I would need to change the filter often. Hm I need to finde a better wording or solution - I guess.

but  > [BE] < ( BE in brackets) is not reserved.. so how can I check (regex) 100% matching a "summary starting with [BE] " like a normal search and replace where I would search for something

Hi @Martin ,


it's not in the list of reserved words, but there is an entire thread of people wondering why it's not possible to search this word :
