Gerrit bug search not (naively) working with Phabricator tasks
Closed, ResolvedPublic


A search for "bug:65278" correctly finds Gerrit change 133650. But "bug:T74334" doesn't find Gerrit change 177076 for some reason, although counterintuitively "bug:74334" (no 'T' prefix) does.

Gerrit's configuration for Phabricator references matches the number only and adds the T in the url. The commentlink match group should instead include the T in the match.

Gerrit 2.12 seems to allow us to search with out any for example type:

So for example you can search for

T1 and it should find commits with that being referenced.

Would that be ok, or do you still want it to be bug:. I doint see that happening in the near future.

The test case in the initial description can still be reproduced.
Whether it's worth to care or not is a different question. :)

Yep it Is still reproducible, I'm wondering if it is infact the plugins that do this if so maybe we can extend it in its-phabricator plugin, if not we can find where the source code is that supports search prefix bug: and then look at it to see why it wont take in T in the search.

Paladox claimed this task.

This now works.


All new changes will be able to do search doing that.

Existing changes will have to be reindexed first. We can either do that through off line reindex or reindex online.

@demon has initiated the online reindex and some existing changes have started to work. Will take a while before all existing changes can do this. But it works now :)
