Download the LCQC as an delimited text file

Post by richmond62 » Fri Oct 04, 2019 6:27 pm

I wonder if there is a way to download the whole of the LiveCode Quality Control Center
as a delimited text file so that I can run it through a series of bespoke filters to isolate certain classes of bugs?

A lot work, and the outcome likely no more satisfying than using the built-in "Advanced Search". It's pretty powerful.

If there's a query you'd like to make and are unsure how to structure it, feel free to post it and I'll see what I can do.

That's a super offer.

The search facility on the web-page offers:

Unconfirmed
Pending
Pending awaiting followup
New
New not reproduced
Assigned
Assigned awaiting followup
Awaiting build
Hibernated
Reopened
Resolved
All

And, as far as I can see, there appears to be no way to further subdivide searches.

So, looking through 'Unconfirmed' I find that most of them are marked as 'Resolved',
which is odd, as I would expect those to come up under 'Resolved', as, as far as I understand,
an unconfirmed bug will not be addressed at all until it has been duplicated.

For the sake of argument it would be useful to have a list of all confirmed bugs that have not been resolved
within the last 5 years.

This seems impossible to obtain as there is no "advanced search" (pace Google) on offer.

Recipe to have access to advanced search:

1. From the main screen, click "Search"
2. In the bottom section labeled "Custom Search" you'll find all fields available in an option control, with a wide range of operators available next to it, and a field for the search value after that.
3. Bonus: clicking "Show Advanced Features" in that area also allows you to nest elements of a query in parenthes, and even use Boolean "Not" for exclusive filtering.
