jira project search using wildcard

I would like to search for issues in projects with a KEY like *SUP (support projects) or a contains clause for the project key ~ SUP.


Any recommendations?

a) You could place all your Support projects in a Project Category called Support Projects, and then just query

category = "support projects" AND ... 



b) If you can't organize your projects into a Project Category, it'll be more difficult: The "Project" field doesn't work with "contains" operators, so you'd have to list them one by one. 

project in (SUP-Alpha, SUP-Browning, SUP-Cathode, SUP-Deliverance, SUP-Emily, SUP-Frumplebottom) AND ... 

... but these tend to break as soon as you add a project or delete one of the old ones.
