Embedded Filters are an integral part of search. One of the most frequent questions we receive is, "Why isn't Release in the field drop-down?"
The answer is embedded filters search in all projects
. This means you aren't able to access the fields that are unique to each project, such as 'release' and 'location.' Embedded filters pull from all projects in your Jama instance that match the filter's criteria.
If you want to include Release as part of your embedded filter, a workaround is with keywords: select Keyword
from the pick list and use "release:" for your search, replacing "" with your specific release.
Note that we are actively improving the search capabilities of Jama, starting with adding elastic search functionality and enabling Keyword and Last Modified facets
. There might be a better method to find what you need in the coming months. Keep an eye on the release notes
