Summary0005731: search function for projects
Description

I would like to have easy access to my projects. So I think it would be nice to have a search funktion implementet. I just want to search for a substring in the project name.

TagsNo tags attached.

Yes, this is on the incremental enhancement list for modern UI.
Out of curiosity, how many projects do you have enabled?

@syncguru, in that case I suggest you assign the issue to yourself and set target version to 2.1.x

It would be very helpful if the search included Project Descriptions / Categories as well.

I know that currently Descriptions and Categories are is not exposed in Project Menu pull down, but with a little tweak to the code they could be.
I am attaching an example how it looks in a real life use case after the aforementioned tweak (the description part is what follows three asterisks there, and in fact is composed of short names of project Categories).

The rationale is that there are situations where only the project name alone makes sense, like in lists where the place is limited, so it should not contain too much text.
But once there are a lot of projects, sub-projects and categories it is VERY difficult for a bug reporter to find the right place. Most often it is a category what the user is looking after, everything else being just part of a hierarchy leading there. An intelligent menu search functionality would be priceless!

Best!
