    Description

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

      Summary

      Would like a feature that allows users to search for all issues that have a particular string within it's name, similar to the summary/ description field search.

      For example:
      project = "Test*"

      or

      project ~ "Test"
      Actual Result:

      JIRA JQL throws an error saying there's no project with the name Test*.

      Expected behaviour

      JIRA returns all issues with test being a part of the project name.

      Actual Solution:

      User can search for issues in those projects using "projects in"

      project in("Test 1","Test 2",......)

      Problem with this is it is not scalable if user has lots of projects in their JIRA instance which start with Test.
