      Atlassian Status as of 12 November 2012

      Hi everyone,

      Thanks so much for your votes and comments on this issue.

      As most of you have seen in the comments below, this issue is resolved in JIRA 5.2!

      In addition to making issue search and issue navigation faster and easier to use, text custom fields are now a part of all quick search and simple search text searches.

      Thanks for your patience and we hope you appreciate our open approach to feature requests.

      Cheers,

      Original Description
      Currently to search for text in a custom field you need edit the search for each field separately. It would be useful if you could add the custom field to the main text query search, like what is done with comments and environment.

          The proposed solution look good.

          When you say "at least for the first implementation of this" does that mean that in a second implementation people will be able to search for text in any field in the simple search, so the quick will be able to return in simple search? Because that would be great.

          Guillaume Côté, thanks for the feedback.

          No I was initially referring to the ability to swap between advanced and simple searching, however that is now no longer in scope and I have updated my feedback comment accordingly.

          additionally, we should also be able to search by number, by specific dates (like in JQL). Quick search shouldnt be limited to just ticket number (with PKEY), title and comments.
