I'm not sure if I get it right but do you mean for example finding a string inside the description?

If yes it should be like this: description ~ 'find my string'

I may actually have a bug in my current set up here. I tried on another JIRA platform and it performed differently. On the other server, issues with www.url.com/query?=ID321541324134 and www.url.com/issue/ID321541324134 show up in the query but the issue with www.url.com/ID321541324134 does not.
