This is a feature request to enhance the XML API to allow us to create Filters via scripts.
User Case (or Justification):
For a large organization, we need an easy way for managers to create filters to check on their teams (e.g. MY Group Open Cases). It will be ideal if the WEB Interfaced allowed users to do ORs (Assigned to Usr1 OR Assigned to Usr2), but it doesn't, so the only way to get that filter is to type a potentially long search string ("assignedto:usr1 or assignedto:usr2 or ..."). That would not be that bad if it wasn't because the search box is a tiny edit box.
While I understand it would be hard to change the Graphical User Interface, it should be relatively easy to add a newFilter XML API to allow us to create such complex filters from a script. Required arguments would include ixPerson and sSearch for the search string
The idea would be for us to write an admin script that can walk through LDAP, extracts the org chart, and automatically creates a "My Group Open Cases" for every manager in the organization.
I know FogBugz customers tend to be very small, but this is an important feature for larger organization. Of course, I would be happy if you would rather improve the GUI to allow managers to easily do this for themselves.
