Match Functions

Filter issues based on specified field values.


Query on any field by regular expression.

issueFieldMatch (subquery, fieldname, regexp)

Performance is proportional to the number of issues selected by the subquery, so use the query that selects the smallest set of issues you can.

To find all issues where the description contains a ABC0000 where 0000 is any number, you could use:

issueFunction in issueFieldMatch("project = DEMO", "description", "ABC\d{4}")

The function searches for the regular expression anywhere within the field. To match the entirety of the field, use ^ and $, e.g. ^ABC\d{4}$.


Find issues by matching the text of a field exactly.

issueFieldExactMatch (subquery, fieldname, regexp)

projectMatch / componentMatch

The following functions provide lists of projects and components that match the provided regular expression.

projectMatch(reg exp)
componentMatch(reg exp)

For example, you want to look for all issues that have a component beginning with Web:

component in componentMatch("^Web.*")


The following function provides lists of versions that match the provided regular expression.

versionMatch(reg exp, [project keys])

For example, you want to find issues with the fixVersion field value that starts with RC across all projects:

fixVersion in versionMatch("^RC.*")

And the same search but restricted to several projects:

fixVersion in versionMatch("^RC.*", "DEMO, EXAMPLE, TEST")
