How to use author in eyeql

I want to: I'm trying to use author in an eyeql query.

Tried this: The only way I could make it work was adding the full name and email to the clause, like this

select revisions where author in ("User One <>", "User Two <>") group by changeset

I tried with userids

select revisions where author in ("uone", "utwo") group by changeset

with emails

select revisions where author in ("", "") group by changeset

but nothing seems to work, except for the very long display name <email>

Q: Really, is this display name <email> the way to do it?

Hi @Javier Perez,

I am afraid at the moment FishEye expects the full committer name as the author, as it was stored in the scm.  

Feel free to raise improvement request in project, it seems reasonable to allow either FishEye user name (so all mapped committer names would match) or even partial committer name.

Hope that helps,

Piotr, thanks for you answer. Notice that it's not only the name what I have to specify, but the full name + the email. The input has to be in the form _User One <>_, _User One_ only doesn't make it

Is this expected?

I think this is expected. I am guessing you are using git or mercurial repository and the committer name that you see in your git log or hg log is displayed exactly in the same format, User One <>, is it not? Remember FishEye has a nice feature where you can switch between simple and advanced (eyeql) query mode, the search criteria will be automatically converted. So if you don't know how to specify particular user, you can use the simple search form to pick up selected user and then switch to advanced (eyeql) mode to see what the query should look like. Perhaps this video would explain better what I mean:

Yes, switching from simple to advanced brings the whole "User One <>" Question clarified, but the answer is less than optimal :-(

Thanks Piotr
