Crucible has a powerful search engine that allows you to find reviews. There are two methods for searching in Crucible:
On this page:
Before you begin:
To search Crucible using the Quick Search:

You can refine your search criteria before executing the search:
Use a field handle in your criteria to restrict your search to a particular field. Note, you cannot have multiple field handles in a query.
Searching for Discrete Strings
Enter a specific string within quotation marks and Crucible will match against the exact string. Note, this search is not case-sensitive.
You can filter Quick Search results using the controls in the left panel of the Quick Search page:
|All repositories||Type a repository name into the field, or click the down arrow to seea list of repositories.|
|Source type||Click Files and directories, Commit messages, Diffs, Content or Committers to restrict the search results to just that source type.|
Select or enter the name of the project that you want to restrict your results to. For example, if you enter 'CR' then the search results page will refresh to display only reviews in the 'CR' project.
Click this link to restrict your results to reviews that have a title, objective, key, linked reviews or linked issues that match the search criteria.
Click this link to restrict your results to reviews that have comments that match the search criteria.
Crucible allows you to view all the reviews/snippets that you are involved with, as well as everybody's reviews/snippets. You can filter these lists to find reviews.
To filter a list of reviews:
Update the filters with your search criteria (see table below) and click 'Apply Filter' to filter the reviews.
Find reviews by searching for words within the title.
Find reviews under a particular project.
Find reviews moderated by a particular authors.
Find reviews moderated by a particular moderators.
Find reviews created by a particular creator.
Find reviews that are reviewed by a particular reviewer. This will default to the user logged in.
This is reliant on the above filter and is used to show reviews that have either been completed by the reviewer, not completed or all reviews.
To use all the above filters, choose 'all'. To use any of the filters, choose 'any'.
Review state checkboxes
Check any of the review state checkboxes (e.g. 'Draft', 'Pending Approval') to filter for reviews in those states.
To search for review comments:
The 'Comment Search' page will display your results. You can refine your search using the search criteria on the page:

Find defects have been given a particular ranking (e.g. 'Major', 'Minor').
Find defects that have been marked as requiring re-review (or not).
Find defects that have been given a particular classification (e.g. 'Missing', 'Ambiguous').

Searching Fisheye (FishEye documentation)
Why not to display similar charts on the report tab?
To be honest, Crucible suffers from lack of reports. I'd like to see more detailed reports that I can find on search comments or JIRA dashboard.
