use of hashtag# in issues# description


I am sorry may be my question was already asked but I didn't find it.
I am moving a project on JIRA with a lot of issues/new features/improvements and I would like to know , if I add an #computer (for example) in the description, I can use this hashtag to find all the bug containing it in the description. Is it possible ? And how can I do it if it is possible ?

And if it is possible I also would like to know if JIRA can create itself a list of all my hashtag or I have to do it manually ?


Thank you very much for your answers

Create a customfield of type "Select List" (can be multiple choice or single choice) and configure the options like "Computer", "Scanner" and so on, what you need.

In Field Configuration you can also configure whether it shell be required to choose at least one out of the list or if its optional

You can then simply filter for the selections.
