You can use our search operators to refine your results on the Search page. By default, all queries will use `AND` when combining multiple operators.
Below are a complete list of our search operators and their definitions:
- Workflow State
- Mention Names
- Story Types
- Child Entities
The following operators match text -- they can be single words that contain no spaces, or quoted strings that may contain spaces.
The id: operator allows you to search for Stories by Story number.
In addition to the state: operator, which is text search on workflow state names, the following operators search over the different types of workflow states. Since stories can only have one workflow state, using more than one of these operators can yield no results.
Stories that have owners and/or requesters can be found by using either of the following operators (the argument must be a complete username in order to match):
A story can have one of three types: Feature, Bug, and Chore. A query that contains more than one unique type operator will yield no results.
For Stories that use an Estimate scale, you can use the following operators.
- is:unestimated - if there is no estimate set
- has:deadline - if a due date is set
- is:overdue - if the due date is in the past
These operators search for Stories that use our Story Relationship feature.
- is:blocked - if the story is blocked by another story
- is:blocker - if the story blocks another story
If a story contains any of the following entities, using these operators will filter the results to include only those stories.
- has:attachment - only searches for attached files, but not anything pasted or uploaded in comments.
In general, archived stories will not rank high in the results.
Of note, you can search for the inverse of an operator by adding an ! or - in front of the operator.
For example, i.e.
-has:comment will return Stories with no comments.
