On the website I want to be able to view a list of issues that I'm subscribed to, but don't [necessarily] have any other involvement with. My current use case is that I'd like to be able to "favorite" issues for future reference (e.g. in case I want to comment later). It would be a bonus if I could filter to see results where I'm only subscribed and have no other involvement. Perhaps a dedicated favoriting feature would even make sense, but GitHub already has a subscription feature and I think I should be able to see what issues I'm subscribed to.

I contacted GitHub support about this and the first response was to use the involves qualifier. But that

is just a logical OR between the author, assignee, mentions and commenter qualifiers for the same user

and does not return issues that I'm only subscribed to. I explained that in my reply and their next reply acknowledged that it's not currently possible to view the list of subscribed issues via the website.

So you have to +1 comment an issue to find it in a query by becoming a commenter. Subscribe is not enough. +1 then.

Any progress with this issue? It is very annoying right now to manage subscribed issues.

It would be great to have this feature. It is a pain to think you are able to go back and find the issues you subscribed to and then not be able to find them. Or find them after searching through all the issues again....this feature needs to be added.

When I contacted GitHub support about this in October they told me this feature was already on their internal list before I asked, but no ETA on doing it. FWIW, I believe you can access this data via the API. Everyone who's commenting +1 here, you should also contact GitHub support to request this feature so they know people are interested.

Alternate walkthrough

Use Github API Issues

Get https://api.github.com/issues?filter=subscribed&state=all with Authorization: Bearer [token] and grab html_url in JSON response.

[token] can be create here: https://github.com/settings/tokens

Now that's a solution to this issue, does create noise, but at least could find a thread again. I started using subscribe as a way to mark stuff I need to be aware of and reread later, only to then realise it's lost and I can't find the stuff again.

@jglick That appears to be asking for it on a per-repo basis -- I want a global list of subscribed issues, although I agree that also being able to filter it per-repo as asked in #196 would be wanted. Not sure about lumping it in with involves: though.

The closest thing I've found is to find all watched items with any activity since I subscribed:

https://github.com/notifications?all=1

but this precise feature is needed sorely.…

Yeah, I provided some similar feedback as well:

Thank you again for this new feature!
I started using it a few days ago and I have to say it's really helpful!

As you asked, here is a feedback from my personal experience:

👍:

  • Easy to use, very intuitive and natural, congrats! 😎
  • Filtering by repo is really helpful
  • List is clear, not too much information
  • I don't use the "reason" filter by now but I understand it may be helpful in some use cases

😐:

  • I don't get why this feature is under "Notifications" view as this list is "Issues I've (been) subscribed to". I would have expected it to land in the "Issues" tab instead (IMHO)
  • We can't filter the subscription type: issue / pr / open / closed / merged
  • Labels aren't appended to issues (when relevant). We can't search on them neither (e.g: "help wanted", "good first issue", "awaiting feedback", ...).

Hope this helps!

👋for those of you who are currently testing and providing feedback on the feature please be mindful that you have signed our prerelease agreement so should refrain from sharing information and screenshots publicly.

i have received all of the feedback above as it's been shared with me directly via email. if you have any further concerns or require more followup please reach out, i promise i'm listening and we're doing the best we can to solving this problem for you all. more updates to come very shortly!

@TPS thank you for the offer. i believe it's okay though it is against the agreement to share such information publicly (just a note to those who posted it).

i want to remain open and transparent with our internal efforts to solving the problems everyone here has helped me understand and iterate on 💓 - in return, please respect our prerelease agreement as it's important for us to contain feature release information as these features are in flux before shipping based on our user testing feedback etc.

@becca Perhaps you ought to "leak" yourselves more officially here, instead of having enthusiasts do it accidentally. Many folks might want to see (w/o experiencing) the beta feature, as they may be nervous to apply to test, but want to keep hope alive.… 🤞

People subscribed to this issue are interested in this topic. Despite being public, I think that's different from some tech news gossip rumoring around. I think it's smart for GitHub to have such a non-disclosure agreement, but I also agree with @TPS: the staff could "leak" some pre-release info to people who demonstrated interest in it. Perhaps @becca could report those stuff with more content (like screenshots). It's unfair to rely on people doing that against the agreement. Collective feedback is also important... you don't need to read a lot of equivalent feedback reports if you can just check how many upvotes some comment has. I'm sorry if this has gone off-topic.

👋 hey again! we're starting to roll out the Subscription List feature out to everyone on github.com. thank you again for all the feedback to those who participated in our testing. we realize we've only just started solving for some of the complexities and needs around subscriptions so please continue to share feedback as we iterate.

This is a no-brainer and thus probably under consideration already, but it would be nice if we could also sort the subscribed issues/PRs by time of most recent update.
I would actually prefer that as the default order.

For the status icons, it would be great to have a balloon pop up with explanations on mouse over. They are not as intuitive as one might hope.

@FredyC is this count still 1000+ if you filter on "Manual"? mine went down to 942 then :-)

I'm getting the feeling there are several ways of having implicit subscriptions

I agree, tooltips here would be useful, and easy to implement.

I'm so glad this has come to fruition.

@TPS right now the subscription list is limited to individual issue and pull request threads. if there are more people here who have a use case for subscribing to commit threads on a pull request then we could continue that discussion over in #1526.

regarding #21, 👍. i will move over to issue #21 with more questions and updates on this request.
