Description Jiri Jaburek 2016-12-06 13:14:00 UTC
Description of problem:

My use case is to be able to "watch" a system's activity log using several queries on the HTTP API [1], using the ever-incrementing "id" field as a delimiter, with each subsequent query specifying a range from the delimiter onwards. This ensures that each query returns only new entries and not previously-processed ones.

In my use case, I care only about ~5 minute sections, so even if the "id" is considered an internal identifier that might re-set in the future and is thus unsuitable for long-term references, it doesn't matter for this usecase.

The idea in code would use Lucene ranges [2], either inclusive or exclusive, to say either of

  id:{123456 TO *}
  id:[123457 TO *]

or (if the above is unsupported by the Beaker parser) something like

  id:{123456 TO 99999999}
  id:[123457 TO 99999999]

where 123456 is the last known "id" of the last-processed entry.

Beaker doesn't seem to currently export the "id" however [1], so this RFE requests that the field be exported, enabling the use case described above.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Beaker 23.3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. curl -sf 'https://<hub>/systems/<fqdn>/activity/?q=id%3A%7B123456+TO+%2A%7D'

Actual results:
Beaker returns JSON specifying no entries found

Expected results:
Beaker returns entries matching the Lucene filter
