Search the Repro Steps field

description

The meat of a bug report is entered in the Repro Steps field, which isn’t included in the fields this otherwise very handy tool searches. (Yes, the Repro Steps are included in the changed fields in History, but TFS doesn’t search the changed fields in History, only the comments.) So we find bugs only if we match a word in the title.

Would love this one - would save us hours!

Gizmo, try this: In the Search Work Items box, enter "--template". That'll bring up the search template the tool uses ... and you can modify it just like any other saved search! Just add an Or clause for Repro Steps and save the search, and you'll be good to go.

Wow, thanks - I clearly missed that! Works like a dream! Thankyou!
