How do I search for a fixed text string in field 'Summary'?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Search syntax for text fields

We want to search the field 'Summary' for a text string with a specific string of words in the exact order of e.g. "exact string". This search gives combinations of exact and string in various Summary fields:  summary ~ "exact string".

How do we do it to have the desired result?

Ok, then try Try JQL statement: summary = "exact string"

When I trun this I get the error:

"The operator '=' is not supported by the 'summary' field."

Try JQL statement: summary ~ "test"

As Lena said in a separate post, we have tried: summary ~ "exact string" which is what you suggest. We do not get the results with only "exact string" in that exact set up. We get combinations with "exact" and "string" where string sometimes comes before "exact" does.

We only want the EXACT "exact string". Is there a way to do this?

And that does not work. This is the message: 'Error in the JQL Query: Expecting either 'OR' or 'AND' but got 'Exposure”'. (line 1, character 38)'

This query: project = GPI AND summary = ”Single exposure" get following message : Error in the JQL Query: The quoted string has not been completed. (line 1, character 49)

Anyone sees where the problem is? How can I search for two words in the exact order???

Topic Tuesday: How did you learn about the AUG programme?

Back in 2010 I hadn't been using the Atlassian tools (JIRA, Confluence, Bamboo) that long and I started searching online to see if I could chat to other users primarily about how they used the produc...
