Is it possible to search for Agile objects where a particular word is available in attachment content. I mean a particular word should be available in the file content

Yes,

In the Java app you can look for text strings in attachments.  Look for the box with the paper clip just to the left of the quick search box.

particular word should be available in the attachment content and not in the attachment file name

Hello

Yes, this is possible by enabling “Full text search” option under System settings in Administrator

Chapter 22 in Administrator guide goes into detail on how to configure. Please check it out

Does it retrieves all the revisions of the agile objects or only the latest revision of the agile objects where the corresponding attachment has a particular word matched

Agile User Answered on October 24, 2019.

Hello

We tried this in 9.3 (approx 8 years back) and we saw that it can search across all revisions. However, when it displays the result, it just shows the latest rev. So, if the search term existed in a prior rev and not in current, user has to check each of the prior revs to see if the content is there

Not sure if there is any change in this behavior in later releases

Include Attachments Text option is not returning all the agile objects which has the content in their attachments.

Hi Kavitha,

For the search function to work with attachments content, Full Text Search needs to be enabled as mentioned by Raj . Please make sure Indexing is completed .

 

Thanks,
