The Basics

Examples of Simple Queries

Here are some examples of how to write some simple queries. Examples for more complex queries can be found lower in this page.

Fields You Can Search On

You can specify any of these fields like field:value in the search box, to search on them. You can also abbreviate the field name, as long as your abbreviation matches only one field name. So, for example, searching on stat:VERIFIED will find all bugs in the VERIFIED status. Some fields have multiple names, and you can use any of those names to search for them.

Advanced Features

Advanced Shortcuts

In addition to using field names to search specific fields, there are certain characters or words that you can use as a "shortcut" for searching certain fields:

Field Shortcut(s)
Make the first word of your search the name of any status, or even an abbreviation of any status, and bugs in that status will be searched. ALL is a special shortcut that means "all statuses". OPEN is a special shortcut that means "all open statuses".
Make the first word of your search the name of any resolution, or even an abbreviation of any resolution, and bugs with that resolution will be searched. For example, making FIX the first word of your search will find all bugs with a resolution of FIXED .
"P1" (as a word anywhere in the search) means "find bugs with the highest priority. "P2" means the second-highest priority, and so on.

Searching for "P1-3" will find bugs in any of the three highest priorities, and so on.

Examples of Complex Queries

It is pretty easy to write rather complex queries without too much effort. For very complex queries, you have to use the Advanced Search form.
