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:
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.
