The Open Brand -- Problem Reporting and Interpretations System
3. Searching Problem Reports
The Problem Report Search page allows a user to search for specific reports in the repository of problem reports, or to search for all reports matching particular criteria. Any search criteria are given using a web form, but if none are specified all problem reports will be returned. The results returned are shown in the Problem Report Summary Page.
The criteria that can be used to constrain the reports returned from a search are shown below. In some cases a number of check-boxes can be used to select one or more values for a particular field. If you do not want to constrain your search on that field, either leave all check-boxes empty, or select them all.
3.1 General Search Options
The following search options are available to all users:
Select the resolution type for reports to match, or select 'No Resolution Given' to select ALL resolutions. Alternatively give the Resolution Id of a specific Problem Report. Resolution Ids give the resolution type and the unique resolution number for all published reports. For example, TSD.0123 or INT.1234. The type codes are given below. Note that the resolution number is not the same as the internal Report Number which is assigned to all reports as soon as they are raised.
Resolution Codes Code Type TSD Test Suite Deficiency CSD Certification System Deficiency INT Interpretation of a specification DUP Duplicate of Previous Problem Report REJ Report Rejected

If you only enter a number in the From field, no reports below that number will be returned. If you only enter a number in the To field, not reports above that number will be returned.
Choose one or more states by selecting the checkboxes. If any states are selected, only reports in one of the selected states will be returned by the search. Definitions of the states are given below.
