JQL multi-select searching

Is there a way to do a search on a multi-select custom field containing one of the configuration values?

For example, I have a multi-select field with choices A, B, C, D. I want to query any issues containing A. Is there a way to query without listing out all permutation in the JQL like cf in ('A', 'A+B', 'A+B+c', 'A+C,...)? The ~ operator doesn't seem to work on multi-select.

Sylvia,

The operator "~" does not work for multi select fields, you're right. Instead, you can simply use the "IN" operator, as in "<Multi-Select cf> in (A)", that will return all issues containing A.

For more information, refer to the documentation here.

Hope that helps.
