Description Ville Skyttä 2005-04-27 19:12:49 UTC
I tried to search for the string "RHSA-2005:103-04" from the Bugzilla front
page's simple search text box, and got a JavaScript alert: "RHSA-2005 is not a
valid field name".  Hmph.

Red Hat Bugzilla is now using version 3.2 of the Bugzilla codebase and therefore this bug will need to be re-verified against the new release. With the updated code this bug may no longer be relevant or may have been fixed in the new code.
Updating bug version to 3.2.

Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2008-09-20 16:57:33 UTC
Still happens with 3.2.

Comment 3 David Lawrence 2008-12-01 05:10:05 UTC
Having a colon in the middle means something different in the quick search text field and the top and bottom of the page. The colon is special notation for 
field1,field2,...:value1,value2,... from the quick search documentation. So for example if you want to search for the string in a bug comment then you would so something like:


The second colon is OK as the split in the back end code will only search up to the first colon.
