DOORS NG 6.0.6 Filter by Primary Text

Richard Hall (107213) | asked Aug 01 '18, 6:46 p.m.

In DOORS NG 6.0.6 is it possible to filter by Primary Text?

I do not want to filter by Full Text which includes other text fields as well as Primary Text
Filtering by Name does not pick up the text that I want.

It seems odd that you can filter by anything other than what could be argued is the most important field so perhaps I  am missing something.

I see some older discussions about this but no resolution.

 I have the same question.  Even when you change to the default view, Text Search continues to look in the Attributes as well.

 I have a similar dilemma.  I want to search primary text.  But, can't figure out how to do that.

 Hi All,

We've since upgraded to v 6.0.6 iFIX007 and in that version there's an enhancement to "Search Artifacts".  You can now narrow your search to Modules only. When you combine that with specifying the Artifact Type you can get a little closer but it's still not the equivalent of filtering the Primary Text column.

In DOORS we combined Object Text searches with other filtering criteria frequently. Not being able to do so in DNG is one of our most common user complaints.
