CodeStream 6.3 brings more powerful, and easier, filter and search capabilities

CodeStream 6.3 brings an overhaul to the Search tab. So much so that the page is now called “Filter & Search”, which is indicative of the powerful new filtering capabilities we’ve added.

Click on the blue Filters button to see a new set of built-in filters that represent things that you might commonly want to see, like anything assigned to you, anything mentioning you, and anything with a certain tag. Additional filters for repo, branch and commit are just days away.

The ability to filter doesn't end there, though, as you’re now able to create your own custom filters using advanced search syntax. Click through to that wiki article to see the complete list of operators that you can use to build the exact filter you need.

Once you’ve created that perfect filter, click the bookmark icon at the right side of the search box to give it a name and save it for easy access.

The overall interface for filter and search results has been improved as well, making things more readable and scannable.

Lastly, for those of you that read the search syntax wiki carefully, you probably saw a bunch of references to code reviews. Yep, CodeStream now has code reviews! The code review functionality is currently in beta and only available in our extension for VS Code. If your team is interested in participating in the beta, reach out to us at
