Hi all,

Is that possible to make a search for tasks by their description? A search by name is possible through:

TaskQuery stringFieldQuery = TaskQuery.create();
stringFieldQuery.where().name().isLike("search by name");

I guessed it was the same for the description but it seems to be unpossible to do such a TaskQuery for the description because the following code returns an IColumnFilterQuery and not an IStringColumnFilterQuery as for the name():

stringFieldQuery.where().description() // There is no isLike("...") method then.

Is there another possibility with the TaskQuery?

Thanks in advance

No, I think you can not do that with the current TaskQuery-API. This is a bug in the API definition. The difference is that the task name is stored as VARCHAR whereas the task description is a TEXT field depending on the DB system.

The same you will encounter in the CaseQuery-API.

Thanks for your post
