      Atlassian Update – 13 April 2018

      Hi everyone,

      We're glad to announce that wildcard functionality for version fields was shipped with Jira Software 7.9. As some of you may have already noticed, 7.9 was released this week, and you can download it here.

      What we've built

      Whether it’s 9, 9.1, or any other derivative you’re looking for, you can now find it with a simple query that uses the ~ operator and an asterisk to indicate the location of unknown characters. 

      Version fields are:

      • Affected version
      • Fix version
      • Custom fields that use the "Version Picker".

      Note that for version fields, the CONTAINS “~" operator returns an exact match. For example, to find the version "9.0" only, you would use the following query:

      fixVersion ~ “9.0”

      To find all issues where the Fix Version field contains a wild-card match for version "9", e.g. 9.1 or 9.0.1:

      fixVersion ~ "9*”

      The DOES NOT CONTAIN "!~” operator can be used to exclude a specific version in your query.

      For example, to find issues where Fix Version is not "9.0", you should use the following query:

      fixVersion !~ “9.0"

      To find all issues where the Fix Version field does not contain any version from the 9.x line:

      fixVersion !~ "9.*"
       
      You can read more in the article on Advanced searching here.

      To read about other capabilities we added in Jira Software 7.9, have a look at our release notes.

      Cheers,
      Katarzyna Derenda
      Product Manager, Jira Server

      Description

      With the release of JIRA 4.3, users can now specify a fix or affects version with a wildcard symbol in the Quick Search box (eg ff:4.*). Would be great to have the same functionality in JQL.
