Escaping special characters doesn't work correctly in issue search. It seems they are ignored.
- Create an issue whose summary is 'fifteen'
- Create an issue whose summary is 'fifteen*'
- Search the second issue with a following keyword
Hits only the second issue. (The one which has a summary 'fifteen*')
Hits both of the issues.
According to JRA-25092,
but it doesn't look working.
Actually the same behavior is also applied to special characters used in the beginning of the word. If we also create an issue with the summary is '*fifteen' if we search for
this search will return all three issues (with summary 'fifteen', '*fifteen' and 'fifteen*').
