Why does the label field not support ~ operator?

I'm trying to create a saved filter based on a partial match of existing label values but I receive the following message: "The operator '~' is not supported by the 'labels' field."

Why is that?

Hello @Bryan Moglia 

Welcome to the Atlassian community.

The CONTAINS operator applies only to text fields.

Labels is a multi-select list field, therefore the CONTAINS operator cannot be used with it.

You can add your vote to a change request on this topic here:

It is possible to do such a search if you are willing to acquire a third party product.

Adaptavist Scriptrunner and their less expensive Enhanced Search product offers an issueFieldMatch function.

JQL Search Extensions offers a wildcardMatch function.
