Hudson-bust.png Using the Search Box for Quicker Navigation










Using the Search Box

Every page in Hudson has a search box on its top right that lets you get to your destination quickly, without multiple clicks.

For example, if you type "foo #53 console", you'll be taken to the console output page of the "foo" job build #53. Or if you have "XYZ" view, just type "XYZ" to get to that view. The search box comes with auto-completion to assist you.

Search box is also context sensitive. If you are already somewhere in the foo job (perhaps you are looking at another build), then you can just type "#53 console" instead of "foo #53 console". If you are already somewhere in the foo #53 (for example, while looking at a test report), then you can type "console" to get to the same page.

OpenSearch support

This search box feature is also exposed to the browser through OpenSearch, so you can install this search and auto-completion feature to your browser search box. This would further reduce the overhead it takes for you to visit a particular page in Hudson.

Feedback appreciated

There's always a room for improvements in how Hudson associates search terms with actual pages. Your feedback is appreciated.
