How do I search questions for a particular product

Colin Thorne (22421619) | asked Jul 04 '12, 10:33 a.m.
Hello, is there a way to search for questions (and answers) for a particular product. For example, I want to search for questions about using defects in RQM. In the old forums I would search in the appropriate forum category.

I can search for "defect RQM" but that seems to get me lots of hits which are just relevant to RTC. I was expecting to find a way of searching for all questions with the tag 'rational-quality-manager' containing the string 'defect'.

Is there a way to do this? Or perhaps someone can suggest an alternative.

We are working on an enhancement for the forum that will bring more advanced search options, including narrowing search results by tag.

If you would like to request a particular feature, you can open a work item here:

Thanks for your response. I couldn't find an existing enhancement that covered this request and so I have created a new one:

Search for questions tagged with rational-quality-manager

If you're only interested in RQM, you list it in your interested tags, or ignore the other products.

Thanks for that tip. Using Ignore helped (adding RQM to interested tags didn't seem to make any difference). However, that means I have to keep adding and removing tags from my ignore list because sometimes I want to see the RTC questions, and sometimes the RQM questions.

Maybe there is an alternative solution.

I don't believe that the ignore list prevents questions from showing up in a search, so you only need to add/remove items from your ignore list to control what appears when you go to the main page. I think. :)
