You can use the Search page to find Stories using the search operators below.
You can also use the Navigational Search Bar from any page in Clubhouse to find Stories using search operators. Also, as you type, our search will auto-suggest any operators that might match your query. Results can be found under the Stories tab in the Navigational Search Bar.
In both places, search results are listed in order of relevance (custom sorting isn't available at this time).
Relevance here means "When a search query contains full text search, relevance is based on how well the text matches the documents. When there isn't any text, and it's just operators, then the results are sorted by last modified date."
Story search queries will look for matches in Story titles, descriptions, and comments, and by default all queries will use
AND logic when combining multiple operators (
OR logic is not available in Search at this time, but it is available when filtering on the Stories page).
There are two categories of search operators available when searching for Stories: Story-specific search operators (which will find results only for Stories), and general search operators (which will find results for both Stories and Epics).
Story-Specific Search Operators
|type:||Finds all Stories of a specific type (feature, bug, or chore). A query that contains more than one unique type operator will yield no results.|
|estimate:||Finds all Stories of a specific point value. This is a numeric value, i.e.
|has:attachment||Finds all Stories with attachments. This operator only searches for attached files, not anything pasted or uploaded in comments|
|Finds all Stories with tasks|
|Find all Stories added to an Epic|
|Finds all Stories that have been marked using Story Relationships as blocked by another Story|
|is:blocker||Finds all Stories that have been marked using Story Relationships as blocking another Story.|
|is:story||Returns only Stories in search results.|
General Search Operators (Click to navigate)
Finds a Story or Epic by its ID number.
The following operators match text -- they can be single words that contain no spaces, or quoted strings that may contain spaces.
Finds Stories in a specific Project (may use the Project name or Project ID). Or Epics with stories in a specific Project. For best results, queries for multi-word Project titles should be placed in double-quotes.
Finds all Stories in a specific Epic. For best results, queries looking for an exact match should be placed in double-quotes.
epic:"all your epics are belong to us"
Find all Stories in the Epics within a specific Milestone. For best results, queries for multi-word Milestone titles should be placed in double-quotes.
Workflow State Operators
Finds all Stories in a specific Workflow state. For best results, queries for multi-word workflow state titles should be placed in double-quotes.
state:"ready for dev"
The state: operator can be used with either a Workflow Name (as in the above example) or a Workflow State ID.
If you use the Workflow State ID, note that it is Workflow-specific, meaning it will return results only for Stories in a specific Workflow (even if the text-based State name, ex. Unscheduled, is the same across Workflows).
In the example below, 500000016 is the Workflow State ID for the Unscheduled State in one Workflow in this Workspace. On the Stories page, you can select any Workflow State's additional options and then View State on Search Page.
If you use the Workflow Name with the operator, state:Unscheduled, it will search across Workflows based on the text of the name. You can see that in addition to the search results returned using 500000016, using the name Unscheduled returns results from all Workflows in the Workspace.
Searching across Workflow States
In addition to the state: operator, 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.
Finds all Stories or Epics with a specific Story label. For best results, queries for multi-word labels should be placed in double-quotes.
At this time, Stories do not inherit Epic labels. In this example, there are two Epics returned by this search because there is an Epic label also named 'user feedback.'
Finds all Stories or Epics owned by a user. This query requires the user's full mention name (also known as their @-name) to work. Do not include the @ symbol at the beginning of the mention name.
Finds all Stories or Epics requested by a user. This query requires the user's full mention name (also known as their @-name) to work. Do not include the @ symbol at the beginning of the mention name.
Inversions and Exclusions
Of note, you can search for the inverse or exclude an operator by adding an ! or - in front of the operator. This is equivalent to a NOT boolean operator.
For example, i.e.
-has:comment will return Stories with no comments.
Dates and Date Ranges
First, it's important to use the correct date formatting in your searches. The format Clubhouse recognizes is 4 digit year-2 digit month-2 digit day:
When searching for a date range, separate your dates with two periods:
You can make your date range open-ended (or unbounded, in search parlance) by adding an asterisk (*) on one side of the range.
An asterisk on the left side of the date range would find you all Stories before the specified date:
And an asterisk on the right side of the date range would find you all Stories after the specified date:
You can also search using the terms yesterday and today, as well as tomorrow (but this latter term can only be used when searching for due dates, more on this below).
Please note that numerical date values and date terms currently can't be mixed -- so a search for '2018-04-01..today' wouldn't work, for example.
You can search for Stories that have been created, updated, completed, or moved using a specified date or date range, or the terms yesterday or today.
You can also search for Stories that are (or were) due on a specified date or date range, or using the terms yesterday, today, or tomorrow.
The updated operator will find Stories that have had changes or additions made to it on or within the specific time period (i.e., changes in description, comments, state, due date, Project, Epic, etc.).
When using the updated: operator, keep in mind that it asks "What Stories or Epics were last updated on/before/after this date or within this date range?"
The moved operator will only find Stories that have changed workflow state (i.e., those which have "moved" to a different workflow state column) on or within a specified time period.
The `has:` Operators
has:comment - Finds all Stories with comments.
has:label - Finds all Stories with a label.
has:deadline - Finds all Stories with a due date.
has:owner - Finds all Stories with an owner.
The `is` Operators
is:unestimated - Finds all Stories with a point value of 0 (in other words, Stories with no point estimation).
is:overdue - Finds all Stories with a due date in the past.
is:archived - Finds all archived Stories.
