New Feature / Feature Enhancement

Fulltext Search as in version 5 and 6 / Volltextsuche wie in 5/6

Wir möchten die Volltextsuche als kleines Eingabefenster in der Titelleiste zurück, wie bei Version 5 und 6.

Die zwei neuen kleinen Fenster für CustomerID und CustomerName sind nutzlos, wenn man zB eine Ticketnummer suchen möchte oder Volltext und die Elasticsearch bringt nicht die Ergebnisse die man braucht. Wir möchten daher das Fensterchen aus Version 5 und 6 zurück.

Es wäre auch ok, wenn man die zwei kleinen Fenster... more »

Ticket Search Attributes in Main Menu

With integrating ElasticSearch in OTRS 7 the input-field for FulltextSearch disappeared in the main menu.

Suggestion for OTRS 8 Agent-Frontend:
It should be possible for agents to search a ticket by ticketnumber without opening another window (like still existing search for customer / customer-user).
Maybe other companys are focused on different search-attributes. So it would be great to select in sysconfig the search-attributes... more »

List Reports for Config Items

It would be great if OTRS Reports Module could generate "Dynamic List" kind reports. Today it is not possible.

Another alternative way to get lists of CIs is that the Search functionality in the CMDB could use a Multiple Selection Field, to be able to perform searches over several CI classes at once.

New Feature / Feature Enhancement

Enhance search for CI when linking within ticket

If you want to link a config item to a ticket from inside the ticket you can only search for it by
- ConfigItem#
- Name
- Deployment State
- Incident State (see CISearchFromTicket.png)
It would be nice if you were given the same choice of custom fields just like when searching the CMDB (see CISearchFromCMDB.png).
Because right now we always have to open a new tab, search for the CI there and copy over the CI#... more »

New Feature / Feature Enhancement

Find similar tickets

It should be possible that if you add text to title or body to a new ticket - or if you work as an agent on an existing ticket - there should be related tickets proposed.
This might work similar to the FAQ-feature in the customer portal.
So maybe the text is checked automatically for key words and somewhere there is a box where there are tickets shown which contain the same key words (which are found there automatically... more »

Search Results as Dashlets
It would be a great (and preferrably easy to implement) idea to be able to make saved searches available in dashboards. So that if you define a search and save the parameters you could choose this saved search to appear as a dashlet in the dashboard. Seems to be pretty easy and would offer a lot of useful things (e. g. keeping track in the dashboard of all tickets in a certain queue which have... more »

search ticket by number

We need to look for tickets by number a lot. Search field


is good, but full text search takes a lot of time.

And a switch that says that we are looking for a ticket number, or a separate search field like




could be a great thing.

User Experience

OTRS Agent search results tick/check box bulk vs. one off

Allow multiple selects with option to zoom each ticked/checked case to open in a new browser tab vs. one off case tick/check and zoom to new browser tab. Could also include the other functions such as unlock/lock, history, priority, note, close, and move. When you select bulk tick/check box it does not provide any fo these options.

User Experience

Improve Search - Allow OR combinations, open up all article fiel

Two improvements to agent searching options:
-#1 Currently stringing multiple fields together assumes an "and" relationship between the fields. (i.e. ticket was created today AND responsible is me). I would like to have the ability to have an OR relationship between search fields (i.e. Customer is X or Responsible is Y).

-#2 Provide the ability to search on tickets based on article level details (i.e. display all... more »

User Experience

Choose agents menu (instant search)

When you want to select an agent to be informed optional by a note, set as owner or responsible you can type the first letter on the keyboard to jump to the agents starting with this letter. Unfortunately this is only working with the first letter. I do suggest to have this feature implemented as an instant search, so when you type the first few letters of an agent name you will jump directly to that agent.
