Text search using symbol "~" for assignee field

Dear All,

How to perform text search for the assignee field? I need to extract JIRA tickets data based on specific domain of the assignee email id. The "~" symbol does not show in the dropdown list for this specific field while it shows for other fields like the comment field.

Thanks & regards

The ~ text search isn't available for non text fields.


  • Summary
  • Description
  • Environment
  • Comments
  • custom fields that use the "Free Text Searcher"; this includes custom fields of the following built-in Custom Field Types
    • Free Text Field (unlimited text)
    • Text Field (< 255 characters)
    • Read-only Text Field

Depending on your plugins you may be able to update a text field in the workflow or automation on change of assignee.


Is there any variants of search in assignee field?
For example: I need to find all issues, which created by users with content "".

Thank you,
