No, I’m being generally slow today haha. Thank you for checking.
I’m at least half a percent sure I have filtered entries based on Created by before. I had to do it only last week when I had to find entries made by a specific user. Not sure how I did that if this was never possible, I’ll file a bug report. Might be something that has changed on Bubbles end.
Not that this makes it better because I would expect that searching for an email address would bring back records created by that person, but another quick test showed that searching by a user’s Unique id does exactly that. So, you know, there’s that.
I do wonder if this response from Emmanuel a few years ago (even though it’s in a different context) does shed some light on it, though…
In other words, email addresses are just, um, special, and you can’t do certain things on them that you might expect to be able to do.
Anyway, that’s enough out of me on this topic. If you do get a response from Bubble, I’d love to hear what the answer is.
That’s interesting, I’ve never had the need to search for a User’s email in a search box inside an app. However, since you are able to filter on the Email field on User in the backend, it doesn’t seem to be related?
I did hear back from the Bubble team, unfortunately there was a bit of miscommunication, and the repro steps weren’t followed as described. (they ended up searching for an “Email” under user, and not “Created by” which is not available for the data type User). So I’m currently waiting to hear back after they’ve done another test.
I heard back from the bubble team today, and they were able to confirm that the Created By field is not being searched in their test app either. It’s been passed on to the engineering team, so I guess it’s now in the bug queue. It’s hardly an app breaking thing so we’ll see when they get to it.
