issueFieldMatch and label custom field

I am trying to use issueFieldMatch on a label custom field named 'Dependances'.

After editing issue to set 'Dependances' to xyz and builtin field 'Labels' to same value, I try the following queries:

  1. issueFieldMatch on Labels field gives 1 issue as a result.

    issueFunction in issueFieldMatch("project = LGTK", 'labels','xyz*')
  2. issueFieldMatch on Dependances field gives no issues as a result, I was expecting same result.

    issueFunction in issueFieldMatch("project = LGTK", 'Dependances','xyz*')

Why is the result different?

Is there any configuration that can be done for the custom field? Or is it something else?


Thanks for your reply,

Hi Thierry,

I've tried to reproduce it but I have exactly the same issues as output of both the JQL queries.

It should work in that way, no other configurations are needed.
