Text Search strange

Hello I'm searching for issues and don't understand why the results are different.

The Summary field is filled with an "identifier" TYPE DWW_ZUHH_2013", all and manually check are exact.

The result differes whether I search "summary ~ "DWW_*" " or "summary ~ "DWW*" " or "summary ~ "DWW" ".

Jira Version 5.2.11 used. Could not find any suitable explanation.

Hi Jan-Christian,

How exactly do the results differ?

How many results do you get in each search?

Best regards,

Peter

Hi Peter

The results differ in the number of found issues. And quite substancial:

"DWW*" = 30 Issues

"DWW_*" = 23 Issues

"DWW_" = 7 Issues

"DRW" = 7 Issues

seems to be an issue with the "_" but you can't escape it.

Hi Jan-Christian,

It probably has something to do with you fuzzy search works :

I would advise you to use the ~"DWW*" search because this seems to have resulted in the correct amount of issues.

Best regards,

Peter
