Why are some words forbidden in JQL? And which one?

Hi,

When I search for words like : the, is, as, are, this... I don't get any results.

My colleague was looking for issues with a Summary starting with "ARE-" when he discovered that.

Is there a list of forbidden words like these ones ?

Thank you in advance,

Regards,

Camille Lecerf

Thank you Ilya for the list.

I complete with this one: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jiracorecloud/search-syntax-for-text-fields-765593720.html#Searchsyntaxfortextfields-reservedReservedwords

To keep the search index size and search performance optimal in Jira, the following English reserved words (also known as 'stop words') are ignored from the search index and hence, Jira's text search features
