Subject [jira] [Commented] (FALCON-1095) Support free-text search for entities
Date Wed, 08 Apr 2015 15:32:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FALCON-1095?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14485393#comment-14485393
] 

Mahak commented on FALCON-1095:
-------------------------------

As a suggestion, I'd recommend searching feeds on the basis of source and target paths.
For the following reasons:
1. When there are a lot of feeds, users don't tend to remember the name of the feeds necessarily
however they do remember the directories that are fed by some feed/process. This might be
an assumption on my side but I did discuss it with some of my colleagues and they share the
same thought.

2. I'm not sure if Falcon has this feature, but when a feed, with a target path already fed
by some other scheduled feed, is submitted an error must be generated stopping this new feed
from being submitted. For such a feature, the aforementioned search capability would come
in handy.

> When users have hundreds or thousands of entities to manage, they may not remember the
exact name/tag of the entity. We would like to provide a more convenient way for the user
to search an entity by providing keywords in name and tags. We also plan to provide a search
UI, similar to Visual Search, to allow the user to enter keywords in a search box and display
the filtered results. The user can click on the entity to view details and search its instances
as well.
> To support free-text search, we plan to extend the LIST API:
> GET api/entities/list/:entity-type
> Parameters changed/added:
>     1) :entity-type  Valid options are cluster, feed, process and schedulable. Here "schedulable"
includes feeds and processes.
>     2) nameseq     Subsequence of entity name. Not case sensitive. Example: "Sample1"
is a subsequence of entity name "SampleFeed1". Note that we rename "pattern" parameter to
"nameseq" to make it more intuitive to the user, but the functionality is already there in
Falcon-914 .
>     3) tagkey         Tag keywords, separated by comma. Not case sensitive.
> Results
>     Return the total number of entity results and a list of entities.
> e.g. falcon entity -list -nameseq housetexas -tagkey estate
> This should return the entity with name "houseSellTexas" and tags "category=realestate".
