Subject Requesting rpc ticket.query advice
Date Fri, 27 Feb 2015 22:00:18 GMT
Hi All

I'm in a situation where I need to perform queries via RPC but it looks 
like I'm limited by the simple query language.

For example, I need to query for a range of values in a custom field I 
added that holds an epoch millisec value.

I *could* use the report methods to create a report that uses SQL, and 
then execute that report on the fly, but afaict I cannot then delete 
that report which makes this approach impractical because this will be a 
heavily used activity.

I did try to populate the ticket.query with SQL such as:

{"params": ["SELECT id FROM ticket WHERE  id='1000'"] , "method": 

but I get back a list of all ticket ids. If I execute that same SELECT 
in a report in BH I get ticket 1000 back.

(1) Am I missing something in the query language?

(2) Would it be a modest task for me to modify ticket.query to accept 
SQL? I haven't looked into the BH code at all. If yes, pointers are welcome.

(3) Would it be easier to add a report.delete?

(4) Or shall I just make my own custom rest interface and access the BH 
DB directly for read only queries?

As always, thanks for the effort put into this tool, really useful.
