Why can't I save changes to a custom search? Edited

Esther Strom Community Leader Jan 27, 2020

I've set up some custom searches in the Alerts view. I recently decided to add a parameter to each search, but when I tried to resave the saved search, it insisted that I provide a new name for the search and created a second saved search. I tried just entering the existing search name, but it won't let me do that; says that search already exists. So now I have to delete all of my existing saved searches and recreate them with the new params.

Is there not a way to save query changes to an existing search? It's kind of a pain to have to do this for a dozen or more saved searches...

Hey @Esther Strom , 


Thank you for reaching out to Opsgenie Community. 

Unfortunately, being able to edit saved-searches is not an option at present. On the other hand, good news are, there is going to be some improvements regarding saved searches in the future. In addition to above, we already have an open feature request related with your issue. 


What I could do for you is adding your account name into the ticket and raise the count of waiting customers for this ability. How does that sound to you?

Well, at least it's acknowledged that this is a shortcoming. Yes, please add my name to the ticket.

Will OpsGenie tickets ever be added to the site so we can track and vote on them ourselves?


I'd like for our account to be added to the ticket also, please.

@Esther Strom , 


Unfortunately, Opsgenie's tickets are not publicly exposed to where you can track and vote. Could you please share your account name in Opsgenie so I can add your company name under it? 


@Jerry Gluck Of course, I would be happy to do that! Could you also share your account name in Opsgenie? 


Let me know if anything else is needed, would be happy to assist!

Hi, the account is Associated Press. Thanks.

Hi. Please also add skywalker (Opsgenie EU) to the list. Would be great to easily change/adjust existing custom searches directly.

I would also like our account to be added to the list, account name: providencehealthplans
