Wildcard text search on the fixversion field (Jira Cloud)

Roy Sela I'm New Here Jan 08, 2018

Trying to perform a wildcard text search on the fixversion field and can't do it since it's not a text field.. Saw some solutions for Jira Server but none for Jira Cloud, can it be done?

Hi Roy,

There is a Suggestion to get this added to JIRA Cloud at JRACLOUD-24152 - JQL - Add wildcard functionality to versions.  In the comments is a Suggestion to use ScriptRunner:

You can use versionMatch function of ScriptRunner plugin like this.


This will cause all version selected which fulfill the following conditions:

  • Prefixed with either CC- or nothing
  • Version suffix is build as follows 15.[anything].0

So would match:

  • CC-15.x.0
  • CC-15.4.0
  • 15.4.0
  • ...

Please vote on JRACLOUD-24152 and add your use case to add impact.  Hopefully this helps.

Thanks Branden, indeed ScriptRunner (and I think also Abacus) can do it indirectly, but I was looking for something internally, so i'll add my vote. 

I definitely understand.  Thanks for voting on the issue and hopefully that will get integrated into JIRA soon.
