Hello, I have summaries that have state abbreviations that are OR(egon) and IN(diana) but I need to use them in jql portion of summary ~.
Thanks in advance for any hints or tips provided.
Hi @Aaron Minoo
Are you asking about searching for a string which contains parentheses?
If so, there is a known issue where escaping such special characters does not work for built-in JQL features: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRACLOUD-62859
It appears that using the following syntax will return issues with parentheses but it will also match on embedded spaces:
summary ~ "OR\\(egon\\)"
Thanks for clarifying, Aaron: you were noting the problem of searching for JQL reserved words, such as with this syntax:
summary ~ "\"IN\"" OR summary ~ "\"OR\""
I do not think searching for items in the reserved words list is possible unless the system settings are changed to do so...And per the documentation that can lead to unexpected results:
A work-around for this may be to either fully spell out the state names. Even using the abbreviations in a separate single/multiselect field may not work due to reserved work checks.
