More Intelligent Search

Reported by: hamela@… Owned by: anybody
Priority: normal Component: Request-a-Hack
Severity: normal Keywords: search
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


Any chance someone could write a hack that implements a more intelligent search feature? The current trac search finds you just about everything and rarely produces any usable results. Would be amazing if there was a hack that would make the search better

Since you have provided no specific examples of how the search can be more intelligent, I'm closing this for now. Reopen if you have more details.

We need the next feature for search function - sort by create date and sort by last update date. For tickets also sorting by last comment date.

Please, give your opinion about it.

Thanks in advance.

For Change Configuration Management would be also useful search for a specific date.

7/12/2019 Charlie - At work we sell various products with numerous versions of software. Almost daily, I need to research some element from the past and need to search our database. I'm looking for a more intelligent method to search.


  1. Safes made for many different customers
  2. Recyclers made for the same customers as the safes

When I search using the word "setup", unfortunately the search returns multiple pages of items found.

Needless to say, the word safe or recycler isn't stated on every ticket we have written.

Can you please tell me how or create a hack so I can sort by product, search and find only the safe items or only the recycler items?

There are a couple of plugins that might implement the functionality you need: FullTextSearchPlugin and TracAdvancedSearchPlugin. For searching through attachments, see SearchAttachmentsPlugin. Also, TracQuery is quite feature rich and may be customised to suit specific needs.
