I'm not able to find a specific Task using the Phabricator search form.

Description of the problem

Searching error in Wikimedia Phabricator and setting a Tag, I cannot find a specific result. Live example:


This result is not listed:

Additional notes

Note that searching "kawabonga" in shows a Task with "wakabonga" in the title.

In this case, it works but I noticed that the matching text is not underlined. Live example:

Note that searching "stupid" in another Phabricator shows a Task with "stupid" in the title.

In this case, it works and I noticed that the matching text is underlined. Live example:

I've read the official Phabricator search documentation and I've also tried title:error, title:~error, core:error and other weird combinations without understanding why Wikimedia Phabricator does not work when using the keyword "error" to find the Task T304193.

So it seems a problem in Wikimedia Phabricator (production) and not Phabricator itself.

Event Timeline

Aklapper edited projects, added Phabricator (Search); removed Phabricator.

Indeed; the proper Maniphest search at also does not list any results

Elasticsearch since Phabricator uses that as backend:

  - type: 'elasticsearch'
    path: '/phabricator'
    port: 9243
    version: 5
      - protocol: 'https'
        host: 'search.svc.eqiad.wmnet'
          read: true
          write: true

We had a task to verify compatibility with ElasticSearch 7.10 then T303445#7807237 states Phabricator uses MySQL. From :

@valerio.bozzolan: Did you intentionally set yourself as task assignee?
