      Status Update 10/11/2021

      I am sorry that I've mislead many of you with a previous comment on how fast we will be able to address this issue. 

      Unfortunately I've failed to properly estimate when we could have started investigating this issue due to other more urgent problems. Thus I am moving this issue back to 'Gathering impact' state till we will be able to properly prioritise the 'exact text' issue. 

      There is no clear estimate of when we can start working on this issue. 

      NOTE: This suggestion is for JIRA Cloud. Using JIRA Server? See the corresponding suggestion.

       

      Currently there is no way to find an exact string using the text ~ or comment ~, etc, notations. Could we add another operator, something equivalent to 'contains exactly'?

      E.g. project = JIRA and text ~~ "this string of text" would return all JIRA project issues with "this string of text", with the individual words in that order.
