TicketQuery - "or"-type filtering with multiple fields

I want to make a TicketQuery that checks for the same term in multiple fields, e.g. summary~=foo and description~=foo and returns any tickets that match in either.

If I write


the query returns only tickets that have the search term in both the fields listed. This is frequently the desired behaviour, but not in my use case; I would like the TicketQuery to return tickets containing 'foo' in either field.

I tried this but it failed with a syntax error from the macro:


which I expected. Also such a notation won't work if you want 'or' queries for different terms, e.g. with summary~=foo or description~=bar.

I don't think this is #5226 or #7558.

Perhaps it's just something I'm missing in the documentation, if you can point that out I'm happy to go fix that.

I was hoping that


would allow this kind of querying, but I see | is already used to separate multiple match values in each filter field, so tweaking the parsing to allow the syntax could get tricky.

I'll mark this one as a duplicate of #2647, and I'll make a note there that the TicketQuery macro also needs adaptation.

After reviewing the TicketQuery wiki I still don't understand how to preform something like:

=== My open tickets ===
[[TicketQuery(owner=$USER [@@[OR]@@] reporter=$USER,status!=closed,order=id,desc=1,format=table,col=summary|reporter|owner|milestone|created|modified)]]

Note how the owner or reporter define if the ticket is /yours/.

Is this TicketQuery possible?

Found solution


you can use the keyword 'or' the filter seems to evaluate like… (status!=closed,reporter=$USER) or (owner=$USER,status!=closed)

It would be nice to see this on the wiki to save others from pain.

Also would be nice to see on the wiki… a short example of format=progress


I would add it to the wiki myself… but last time I made changes they got reverted and I HATE wasting my time.

Well, we hate wasting our time, too…

it seems the or trick that I thought worked was not true… Perhaps one of the devs can take a look?
