Custom field searchable

I created a new custom field named "Test Case"

I see that this new field is not searchable. 

At the query:  "Test Case" = '1'

I get the error message: Field 'Test Case' is not searchable, it is only sortable.

How can I make the field searchable?

Go to the field in the list of custom fields and select the "edit" option.  You need to select a "searcher" in there (and re-index all the projects using the field to make it work)

I am not sure what you mean with select a "searcher". There's no such option.

In more recent versions, it's called "Search template"

Thanks that did it
