Search Bugs

If you need to find a specific bug that is not included in any of the available filters, you can use search.

Searching for a bug

You can build a search query by selecting the criteria from the drop-down lists.

To search for a bug

  1. Sign in to the Dashboard from either the Hardware Dev Center or the Windows Dev Center by using a Microsoft account.

  2. On the left side, click Bug management.

  3. On the Bug management page, in the View or Search bugs tile, click Search bugs.

  4. On the Search page, select the field that you want to search by, select an operator (Example “=”, “>”,”<” etc) and select or enter the value.

    Note
    To change between “And” and “Or” queries simply click on the operator. We can either create a query based on “And” or a query based on “Or”. Grouped queries are not supported.

  5. To add more fields click “+”. To remove fields in the criteria click “-“.

  6. After you have selected your parameters, click Search.

Tip
When you create a customized search on the Advanced Search tab, copy the URL that you generated and save it to your Favorites so that you can open it again later.

Note
Advanced Search supports a maximum of 3 instances of a field in a single query. Example: Severity = 1 OR Severity = 2 OR Severity = 3.
