Description

I think two improvements can help a lot:
  • Add filter to search in open tickes only (now it's searching just thru all tickets, which is a bit frustrating when looking for my old tickets on redmine.org)
  • Add information about ticket state in search results - now I even cannot see, if ticket is closd or not

Different icon for closed issues in search result (#992).

History

#1 Updated by Neil Rodrigues over 9 years ago

I would personally love this feature as well. Often I have to perform searches to see whether or not an issue has already been created. It would be great to be able to filter out all closed issues, or at least for the icon to indicate the issue status (like it does on the Activity page).

Done in r2256.

Is there any way you could apply this to the Classic theme too?

Nevermind. It is there. I just forgot to clear my cache.

#5 Updated by Raphael Sofaer over 7 years ago

Even with a relatively small amount of tickets, not being able to search only open tickets is pretty annoying.

#6 Updated by Gam Ov over 7 years ago

I love Redmine and use it everyday but this is the single most annoying part of the application. You have to filter mentally / manually the closed tickets from the open ones...
I'm actually quite shocked that this is not yet implemented. Is there a way to pledge and donate for a particular feature?

As the number of closed tickets grows, your search result gets polluted by those old tickets and there is more everyday.

Being able to search for open tickets only would really be a great feature. As soon as you have a few hundred tickets (easily reached in most projects) you often get tons of irrelevant (because already solved) results when searching for keywords.
@Jean-Philippe: You implemented the icon two years ago, is there any chance you could add the filter?

+1 Search only open or only closed issues would make search actually useful for our team.

#11 Updated by Fernando Hartmann about 6 years ago

Suggestions :-)
  • The search page can use the same filtering mechanism of the issue page (including the options e group by sections), with this we can refine the search using a "familiar" interface for the user.
  • It would be great if the search can be made ignoring accents, in languages like Portuguese we use a lot off then but wen searching you never now if it was used or not.
  • Can use regex for advanced searches .

#12 Updated by Adam Dingle almost 6 years ago

+1. I almost always want to search only open issues and so today I rarely use the search box; I have to go through the filter interface instead, which is cumbersome.

#13 Updated by Terence Mill almost 6 years ago

+1 for improved search otptions from global search

Please think about this feature !
We that use accented characters have a lot of problems in search because nowadays as the search works, words like Índia , índia , india are different !
To us is very difficult to find something in a big project, because you never now how people wrote the name.
Please solve this issue in the next version.
Thanks for your great work.

Ok, my bad ..
This was happening by a misleading on Redmine/MySQL configuration. I had in Redmine Latin1 configured and on MySQL UTF8, after the correction the searches are ok.
But my vote to this Issue is still valid because we need a better way to refine the queries over huge bases of issues.

#17 Updated by Daniel Felix about 5 years ago

Well I would agree that the search could be pretty improved.

#20 Updated by Arnis Juraga about 4 years ago

+1 to #10734 - is is really hard to list all issues in "global search", even on redmine org - if I want to search only for open issues. Even when I searched for issues with #10734 subject - a lot of "closed" unneeded issues.

+1 to this and #10734, any news?
