Dynamic Search View

This plugin is up for adoption! We are looking for new maintainers. Visit our Adopt a Plugin initiative for more information.

Adds a new list view, which allows to dynamically specify additional filters.

About this plugin

Dynamic Search View allows setting of additional filters at the view’s main page, which will be applied after clicking on the "Submit" button. So, user is able to filter and search jobs without creation of new Views.


Current version of the plugin is a "proof of concept" and has several significant issues (see below). They will be fixed in future versions. Anyway, feel free to contribute...


  1. Create a new view (version 0.1 - "SimpleSearchView")
  2. Configure the view as a typical ListView.
    1. You can able to setup implicit filters and columns.
    2. The plugin also supports standard JobFilter and ListViewColumn extensions
    3. If you want to filter all jobs, just set a regexp filter with ".*" mask
  3. Use your view
    1. You can set additional filters at the view's main page
    2. Filters will be updated after clicking on "Submit" button
