Summary0023436: Editing a stored filter can't update projects property


Multiple users have cited an issue with changing the project designation for a saved filter (i.e., stored query). In particular, while the user edited and saved a change to the project filter designation, that change is not sticking.

Here's an example sequence:

  • View Issues -> Edit the search fields but leave ::Project as All Projects
  • Save the filter (We'll call it FOO)
  • Select some other pre-existing filter - the expected results are seen
  • Filter -> Edit (FOO), modify the ::Project to be <some specific project name>, Save
  • Select some other filter
  • Select the FOO filter
    --> The results will be shown for ::Project==AllProjects (i.e., the change to <some specific project name> was not saved)

Apologies if this is a duplicate issue. If another similar one has been filed, I was unable to find it.

Thanks very much,

TagsNo tags attached.

One more piece of information - the only found workaround is to save the filter under a different name (i.e., changing the project designation for an existing saved filter is not sticking).

What is the target MantisBT release

Maybe 2.7, but watch fields Target Version and Fixed in Version.

@helfy022 can you confirm that the change fixes your issue?

Hi @atrol,

Sounds good. I will indeed watch for the update on those fields.

Modifying the core config is not an option, so I am unable to test out the fixes.

Thanks very much,
