Find What You Need! All About Our New Search Tool.

Our new Search tool allows you to quickly build detailed queries directly from the page displaying your crash data.

Overview

Our new search tool expands on our column filtering feature. You can now create even more detailed queries by filtering on 20 unique criteria.

New for this release is the ability to search Call Stack Function Names, Call Stack File Names, and Call Stack Line Numbers. These three new search criteria are particularly interesting as they allow you to search at any level of the call stack across all crashes in your database.

How does it work?

First, navigate to the Crashes page. Then select the blue Search button and use the dropdown to select the call stack search criteria you need.

For example, use the Call Stack Function Name “contains” option and enter a portion of a function name to match function names at any level of the call stack for any crash in your database!

Build an ever more detailed search by adding additional search criteria until you’re satisfied with the search results.

If you have a search query that you’d like to reuse, save the dynamic URL as a bookmark or share it with your team.

Exporting Data

Using the Export option on the Crash page you are able to export any selected data set directly to JSON.

Legacy Search Page Retired

Previously our search tool was on a separate page. With these new features, our old search page offers no significant additional value, so it has been retired.

That said, for a short time you can still reach our legacy search page via direct link by visiting https://app.bugsplat.com/search/. If you feel you need the old page, please reach out to us! We'd like to understand what's missing for you.

Up next

Our work on search isn’t finished! Soon we will release the following:

  • Search type-ahead built into the dropdown filters making it faster to build queries

  • Locally saved searches accessible on the Crashes page

  • Custom alerts for Slack, MS Teams, Discord, email, and text created from search queries

  • Shortcut keys for building searches without clicks
