      On this documentation it says
      and to search for [example] in the summary of an advanced search (in JIRA Query Language or JQL), use the query:

      summary ~ "\\[example\\]"
      

      However if you search for this it will bring everything that have "example" and not [example]

      Like the result of this query will have all the following:
      example
      example
      /example/
      example
