JQL issue property contains phrase is not working


I’m trying to search issues using JQL by an issue property that contains an exact phrase:

issue.property[my-property].content ~ "\"hello world\""

The rest request looks like this:


But it gives me an Internal server error.

It also errors without escaping the quotes, like this:

issue.property[my-property].content ~ "hello world"

This is something that used to work before. Did something change? Anyone can help me to make this work?
