Filter code search by topic or repository wildcard



is it possible to filter code search for repository tags (topics) or use a wildcard in the repo filter?

This would be very useful.


Thank you

Re: Filter code search by topic or repository wildcard

Hi @wiegandf,


Topic search is only available at repository level currently:


In terms of the flow you are looking at you may need to perform a couple of searches:


-Firstly use topic search to isolate the repositories that you want to look at

-Secondly use issue search within the repository that is returned to isolate the issues that you are looking for.


You could theoretically use the Search API to automate this: this could first search for the repositories with a given topic, then iterate through the ones that you are interested in and perform a search for issues with those criteria.


However, be aware of rate limiting in this instance: if you are performing a number of searches.


I hope this helps
