Here's a simple example - I have two JIRA issues, first contains "
/path2/file", second contains "
/. If I use this JQL: "
text ~ path2", then only the second issue shows up in search results. (Note quotes are not actually part of issues or JQL).
Is there a setting I can change or a different JQL I can use to get the first issue to show up in search results?
Note I'm using a local install of the latest JIRA, 7.4.4, and I also explicitly reindexed JIRA and it made no difference.
UPDATE: if search term is only letters, it actually works - search results contain issues with that term when part of a folder/path/directory. So problem is just search terms that have letters and numbers.
Update Sept 12 - did thorough test:
T1 issue contains in description "path2" T2 issue contains in description "path2/file" T3 issue contains in description "/path2/file" T4 issue contains in description "/long/path2/file" T5 issue contains in description "path" T6 issue contains in description "path/file" T7 issue contains in description "/path/file" T8 issue contains in description "/long/path/file" T9 issue contains in description "/long2/path2/file" Issues appearing on JIRA 7.5.0 server (not cloud): T1 T2 T3 T4 T5 T6 T7 T8 T9 JQL 5 6 7 8 text ~ "path" 1 text ~ "path?" 1 2 3 5 6 7 8 text ~ "path*" 1 text ~ "path2" text ~ "path2?" 1 2 3 text ~ "path2*" Summary - T4, T9 never found. T8 found, so text ~ "path*" will match /long/path/file Conclusion: the directory delimiter / is a word break (like whitespace) only when letters are used (T8), not when letters and numbers (T4, T9).
Yes ... and no. I've created 2 issues, one with a description of path2 and one with a description of /path2/file, as per your example.
Searching for text ~ path2 only returns 1 issue, as you have.
Searching for text ~ "path2" also returns 1 issue (not the added quotes)
Searching for text ~ "path2?" returns 0 issues
Searching for text ~ path2* results in an error
BUT ... searching for text ~ "path2*" returns 2 issues
Try adding quotes around your search string with an appended *
