Searching with the Search Editor

This page shows how to search for issues using the search editor in Google Issue Tracker.

Search results are limited to issues in the components where you have View Issues permission.

Search with the search editor

To search with the search editor:

  1. Open Issue Tracker in your web browser.

  2. Click the drop-down button on the right side of the search bar.

    The search bar is always displayed at the top of Issue Tracker.

  3. Click the Search Editor tab.

  4. Enter search parameters in the text box.

    For example, if you wanted to search for all open issues that you reported, use the query: status:open reporter:me

    As you add criteria to the search, Issue Tracker offers autocomplete suggestions in a drop-down list to aid in your query construction. You can use the tab key or click on the highlighted suggestion to complete it.

    For information on the search query language, you click the Search help link at the bottom of the search editor, or see Search Query Language.

  5. Save your search criteria. Optional.

    The Save search as field in the bottom right of the search editor allows you to name and save a seach so that you can run the same search later without having to re-enter the criteria.

  6. Click Save or Search to perform the search.

You can always save the search criteria after the search has been performed -- that is, from the search results page. To do so, return to the search editor from the results page, give the search a name, and click Save.

Both the language syntax and autocomplete also apply to the issue search bar at the top of Issue Tracker. However, from the search bar you are not able to save searches. If you'd like to save a search you are currently viewing or that is in the search bar, you can open the search editor at any time and do so.
