versionMatches() from JQL Tricks plugin not working

I'm playing with the versionMatches function from the Tricks plugin, and it doesn't seem to be working. (I need to pull a report once a month for all of my developer's projects (around 11) and all of the releases for each project (between 1 and 4 per project per month), so doing this without some fancy functions is a major time sink.)

Here's a screenshot of the base query to show that we have data and what our fixversion looks like:

And then adding the function to the query, which gives me no results:

What am I doing wrong?

Try something like this:

project in (BILLGTWY) and fixVersion in versionMatches(".*Jan/2012.*")

Bascially, it takes a Java regex as input.

Sorry, missed the last ')'. Updated the answer. try that!

Ah, perfection, thank you very much!

Or versionMatches(".*Jan/2012\\)") if it always ends with ')'

Ugh, the documentation did mention regex but the example had it as a simple string. But I tried your syntax and it's still not finding any tickets.

You can also do ".*Jan/2012.*" since it looks like the regex is being anchored.
