Bug report #14769

Filtering in QGIS browser only returns result in already opened folders or databases

Added by Harrissou Santanna about 8 years ago. Updated about 5 years ago.

Affected QGIS version:3.0.0 Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:22726


Open a new instance of QGIS and open the browser panel if not already done
Click on the filter button and make a search for a file/table/folder you know that exists. QGIS will only returns drives/DB that have such "search text" in their name.
Let's clear the search text and now extend one of the listed drives/DB. If you make a new search, content of this drive is now taken into account, but not its subfolders.
....and so on...

If I need to open the right folder to be able to have my file returned by the search, better open it directly. This makes the search tool useless so I set the priority level at blocker.
