Phabricator search is still horrible
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

(I am sure there are tasks about this already, but, see title...)

Query for tag:CentralAuth, text:OTRS does not find T21161.

(Recently I have wasted 15+ minutes every single time I tried to find an old task, despite generally having a good memory on what details to search for. IMO the brokenness of Phab search since the InnoDB switch is approaching unbreak now territory.)

See T146843 please. We plan on using elasticsearch. But we carn't commit to doing that.

Elasticsearch is running on phab-01, since yesterday and we found it was much better in ranking.

Could you test on https://phab-01.wmflabs.org/ to see if that's the type of searches you like.

We are adding support for elasticsearch 2, then we will need to find the resources for this per https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T146843#2678289 @mmodell

Deffitly find it searches correctly.

Yeah, it is (worse in some ways right now). Work is happening in the other task Paladox linked. This one isn't really actionable (where as the other one is, and will address the underlying issue with this one "search sucks). Merging it in.

Note that the mentioned search does find the mentioned task now that indexing has completed.
