    Description

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

      When you attempt to search for issues in JIRA with special characters ( - ) some issues are returned, however, not all issues are returned.

      How to Replicate:

      Create 5 issues:

      test-test
      test-1test
      test-1test-1
      test-25-test-2
      test-322-test-4

      Search for Search for summary ~ "test"

      The results come back and the only issue that is found is test-test

      The first issue is returned but the rest are not.

      Attempting to escape the characters with \ or
      per Search syntax for text fields does not work.

      A search for summary ~ "test*" returns the issues but also returns more results than the intended data set.
