Query Issues Custom Fields: Search by Summary

Hi Andrey,

we configured your plugin and it works great, but, people in the business want to be able to search the field by issue summary (instead of issue key). I understand this can be a bit ambiguous, as 2 tickets could have the same summary, but a search like:

multilinkefield_name in ("Task Alpha","Task Beta","Task Gamma","Task Delta","Task Epsilon","Task Zeta")


from a user perspective, would be much more clear and easy to maintain than:


multilinkefield_name in (PRJ-23,PRJ-50,PRJ-12,PRJ-2,PRJ-70,PRJ-345,PRJ-5,PRJ-35)


Please let me know your thoughts and if you think it's feasible,

Also, while the default Atlassian searcher for multiselect list, shows autocomplete in the advanced search, this doesn't.

IT would be ideal top be able to write a JQL by Summary with autocomplete. Could it be implemented please?
