#4504 "self" variable for ticket searches

Cory Johns
Chris Tsai

I'd like to be able to set up a saved search that could return all the tickets reported by the user performing the search. Similar to how Trac uses $USER for that purpose (eg. https://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/sourceforge/report/9).

Or some other way for users to (relatively) easily find the tickets they submitted.


Tickets: #4504
Tickets: #5757

    We've implemented $USER variable in the searches. Now search query is preprocessed and $USER is replaced by actual username right before feeding query to solr. It works fine for tickets, however there is one problem. If $USER variable appears in 'saved search' then users will get inconsistent number of hits for this search in the left bar, due to a fact that hits are cached.

    I see two options here:

    1. Don't display hits for saved searches containing $USER (maybe display some placeholder like 'x' or nothing at all)
    2. Update counts for this searches on every request (it might be pretty expensive)

    What is your thoughts about that? Thanks

    Option 1 makes sense to me. I think showing nothing at all would be fine - whatever's easy.
