 ===== Introduction ===== ===== Introduction =====
-Introduction of idea+The codebase for filter api is overly complicated and confusing both from a users perspective and a developers perspective.  A class based filter api would: 
 +   * Simplify the codebase 
 +   * Increase maintainability 
 +   * Enable greater filter customization 
 +   * Allow a simpler user interface
  
 ===== Implementation Notes ===== ===== Implementation Notes =====
- +   * The default simple filter would be a Google-like single textbox.  
-  Some notes+     * It __may__ include a select list of fields to search. 
 +     * Alternatively, administrators __may__ be able to choose lists of fields to search/display for simple/advanced filters 
 +     * The current search field searches the summary, description, steps to reproduce, additional information, issue bugnotes, bug id, and bugnote id fields. 
 +     * The new search may include those fields as well as text based custom fields, tags, and in the future, expand to other fields. 
 +   * Simple stored queries would be converted to advanced queries 
 +   * hide status would be removed in favour of explicit show status in advanced query 
 +   * Advanced filter would look similar to the current advanced filter with multi select fields 
 +   * The text search would employ google-like syntax 
 +     * A B C - search for issue with A and B and C 
 +     * "A B C" - search for issue with the phrase "A B C" 
 +     * A -B - search for issue with A and not with B 
 +     desc:A - search only the issue description for A
