It’s important to understand that the order of versions is controlled by the order they are arranged in your project’s versions configuration and not by the version number! If the order is incorrect, just go to your Project Settings → Versions and reorder the versions by drag and drop.


Wildcard searching and regular expressions

Searching using the version order can be problematic because you need to use an existing version as a range limit. Sometimes you may also want to find issues with versions that contain a particular text in the version name. Fortunately, you can perform advanced version searches with JQL Search Extensions.

To search by wildcard, simply got go to Extended Search and execute issue in wildcardMatch("fixVersion", "v2.0*") to find all issues with versions starting with “v2.0”. You can put a wildcard anywhere in a search text.


For more examples on how to use the functions have a look at the documentation for wildcardMatch and regex.You can also try JQL Search Extensions in your Jira now!
