When searching the article and bug, you can create complex search queries using a few simple logical operators.

Searching for One or More Words

The default logical operator is OR - list each word you want to find separated by spaces. For example, to find all bug reports about HTTP or networking, use:

http network

You can also require both words using the AND keyword. For example, to find all bug reports about HTTP against HTMLDOC 1.8.x, use:

http and 1.8

Searching for a Complete Phrase

Enclose phrases containing spaces in quotes. For example, to find all articles about weekly snapshots, use:

"weekly snapshot"

Excluding Words and Phrases

The NOT operator can be used to exclude a word or phrase. For example, to find all articles that are not about weekly snapshots, use:

not "weekly snapshot"

Similarly, to find all 1.8 bug reports that are not feature requests, use:

1.8 and not feature

Grouping Multiple Queries

You can group multiple queries using parenthesis. For example, to find all 1.8 bug reports concerning Solaris or HP-UX, use:

1.8 and (Solaris HP-UX)

Searching Specific Fields

You can search specific fields by prefixing your search words with the corresponding field name. For example, to find all bug reports submitted by user "jane", use:

creator:jane
