#8059 Ticket search's dropdown filter choices should not show options from deleted tickets


Example, you are regular user, not an admin. On a ticket listing page you can click on the "Creator" column header and see all Creators listed as choices, even those of tickets that have been marked as deleted and are not visible to you.

In paged_search I think we need to have something like the show_deleted logic added in to the q query as well. Regular users that aren't going to have access to private or deleted tickets should have those omitted in the initial search. (Maybe just for deleted tickets and not private tickets, since private tickets will have certain users (submitter) that does have access to it)

    Under class Globals in model/ticket.py , I can add another property:
    @property def not_closed_deleted_query(self): return self.not_closed_query+' && deleted:False'

    & In tracker_main.py , in class RootController , method index(),
    I replace c.app.globals.not_closed_query with c.app.globals.not_closed_deleted_query as the query for paged_query_or_search

      What about other pages like a search or when you click on a milestone? Those run from different controllers than index. And admins have a "Show deleted tickets" link, so we'll want that option to continue to work for them.

        In class Ticket, I can add a class method

        def not_deleted_query(cls,search_query):
            """Update search query to not include deleted tickets
            search_query - query in solr syntax
            return search_query + ' && deleted: False'

        Then, in paged_query_or_search(), I can modify the search_query using this method
        This fixes the issue for all the pages-tickets,milestones. "Show deleted tickets" still works

          Cool - if it all works, submit a merge request and I can take a better look at it that way.
