Running an advanced query

Advanced queries enable you to define search criteria for an artifact. You can use this form to enter values for some, all or none of the attributes available in an artifact type.

Searching for artifacts using their Artifact IDs is the easiest way. To search by more complex criteria, you can perform an advanced query. Advanced queries allow you to search using user names of people associated to artifacts or dates when the artifact was modified. For example:

Note that if you search by modification (change) date, Project Tracker also returns artifacts that have been created but have not been changed since their creation date. This is because Project Tracker treats the creation date as a modification date.

Query definition pages may contain additional (non-default) input fields that are based upon any attribute groups that have been defined for the artifact type.

To access the Advanced query page:

  1. Select the Query artifacts tab on the Project Tracker page.
  2. Click the Create New button.
  3. Click the Advanced Query sub-tab.

On the Advanced query page, you identify the artifact type or types that you want to use in the search. You can optionally specify additional search criteria, such as a date range, particular users associated with an artifact, and so on. The query criteria include:
