It's common to see warnings such as:

can-query-logic: Ignoring keys: foo, bar

I think we an improve on this in a few ways:

  1. Make it more clear that this occurs when a query is requested (ie, when someone does Todo.getList(query). One idea is to log the actual query object.
  2. Point out that this often occurs when a custom Query Logic is needed and link to documentation about that.
  3. It's possible that you simply forget to wrap your query in filter: query. Not sure how to aid with this case.

1. What a key is.

A key is a property on a query object. For example, you might do .getList({foo: "bar"}) ... foo is a key that isn't understood by QueryLogic.

2. When this occurs. Is it when a query is defined? is it when a request is made? Is it when a request is received.

It's when a query object like {foo: "bar"} is hydrated into new BasicQuery(). This happens when any query operation takes place. .filterMembers, .union, etc.

3. Why are the keys being ignored? What does it even mean to ignore a key?

The key are ignored because QueryLogic by default only understands these keys:

To ignore a key means QueryLogic does nothing with it.

4. Are keys being ignored bad? Did I do something wrong? If so, what did I do wrong?

Sometimes it's bad. It might (as it means in this case), that you've not mapped your service's API to what QueryLogic expects.
