Adding containstring to a measure

Hi

I have the below measure that counts all the rows in the "incident tickets" table where the "assignment group" is equal to "incident"

 

Ticket Count = COUNTROWS(FILTER('Incident Tickets', [Assignment group] = "Incident")

How would I change this to count 
all the rows in the "incident tickets" table where the "assignment group" contains the string "incident"

 

I know I need to use the contrainsstring() but not sure how to structure it

Thanks

Hi @PowerBINoob12 

try with

Ticket Count = 

COUNTROWS(

          FILTER(

                  'Incident Tickets',

                  CONTAINSSTRING('Incident Tickets'[Assignment group] = "incident")

)

Hi @PowerBINoob12

I get this error then:

Too few arguments were passed to the CONTAINSSTRING function. The minimum argument count for the function is 2.

NM, removed the = for a comma. 

Thanks for your help
