Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 376101
Search (advanced) query results don't show the search parameters
Last modified: 2013-06-23 22:45:11 EDT
Description of problem:
When doing multiple queries in different 'tabbed' web pages, it's too easy to
lose track of what query generated what list of results.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Bugzilla Version 2.18-rh
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter a query in the bugzilla web query page (advanced)
2. See the query results list page
You need to read the web page URL to figure out what the original query was.
There should be some indication of the original query on the top of the web page
At the bottom of the query results is a link called 'Edit Query'. If you click
on that link it will take you back to a query page with your previous search
Maybe this use-case will clarify matters:
1. I'm looking for a bug relating to several components.
2. I enter queries in several browser tabs in Firefox, each containing the
results of a different query.
3. I'm also entering a bug.
It's too easy to forget which tab contains which query results unless the query
was displayed at the top of the search results.
I'm not talking about the full SQL query - it would be too general, just the
equivalent query containing just those fields I filled in.
The less convenient alternative would be to check the URL of the browser tab to
see what I entered.
The even less convenient alternative - the one that you're recommending - is
that I click the "edit search" button that takes me to the page where I entered
memory about the query, perform it again, for each browser tab?
I think that's called obfuscation.
