Who do I filter on the primary text field in RRC / DOORs Next Generation?

Joe Gariano (8813137) | asked Jun 03 '13, 12:50 p.m.
I'm using RM 4.0.2 (i.e. RRC or DOORS Next Generation).  I want to create a view that shows me all requirements of a certain type that has the string "TBD" in the primary text field.  I know how to create a view that filters on string contained in other fields (e.g. the name field or other custom fields).  But I don't see an option to filter on the primary text.  I'm be surprised if you can't do this somehow.

Any help is appreciated.

The following suggestion doesn't function as an official view filter, but you can enter the primary text you are searching for in the Quick Search box in the top-right corner of your screen and receive a list of artifacts which contain this content. 

It looks like the query to perform this action is supported in the code, but is not made public through the Filter mechanism (most likely for performance reasons).

Hope this helps,

I was able to filter for Primary Text containing a string using Report Builder.
