Feature Request: Searching on the Transaction Log #987
The Logs page is a very useful resource for information, e.g. finding the IP / User-agent of the requester.
But it's currently not searchable. We had a problem when wanted to debug a duplicate payment and had to click the "Load More" at least 50 - 80 times before reaching that transaction (all filters to narrow things down applied).
(After so many clicks, I was glad that the saved offline HTML preserves these links. )
In addition, there are at least three other things we can do to make the searching and discoverability of errors/logs better:

@daemonsy you can actually search by OHM# in the search box. What pieces of information do you have when trying to locate a specific log? We constrain the list by endpoint and request status currently. Will adding a date filter solve your problem? How granular does it need to be to meet your needs? By day? By hour?
Hey @dmdj03, when you say search by OHM#, how do you retrieve the OHM#?
The example of what happened to us:
We wanted to see transactions that happened between X datetime to Y datetime, based on the timestamps on our own backend. We wanted to get the user agent that created the transaction and it that could only be accessed from the log. Hence we needed to find the corresponding request in the log. Adding a date filter would solve the problem we faced indirectly. Might be a great thing if there's links in each transaction pointing to requests related to them.
