Search by session

 Hello. Very much missing search by the session, which was called in the old version by keys CTRL+F. In one of the videos on your channel, I noticed that this feature was present in Fiddler Everywhere on Mac OS.

Thank you for using Fiddler Everywhere and for your feedback!


The team removed the search functionality and focused on the filter capabilities, which are pretty much a way to find a specific session or set of sessions based on a filter rule. So that said, at this very moment, we are not planning on returning the search functionality. Still, I will mark this one as a feature request and move it to the FR section.

I need to search for a value across all sessions. How do I do that using filter? 

I also need to search a value across all sessions. How you do that with using filter rule or something else ?

Hey everyone,


The team is researching the options to provide more complex search capabilities. I will update this thread as soon as we have more insights.


As a side note, I wanted to let you know that you could also use the filters in the Live Traffic to further structure the information from the captured traffic. Learn more about filtering the data from this documentation section.  

Alternatively, you could also use the search functionality available in each inspector (request and response inspectors).

Another vote for Ctrl-F to find text in all sessions (and ability to choose where to look: request/response/both), as fiddler classic has always had. Unfortunately not having this feature is a deal breaker for me, and I will just hit F12 in my browser instead of using fiddler everywhere :(


The typical use case: you may have 500+ sessions, and inspecting a request you might see a value (a token, an ID, etc) being passed. To find where this value first came from you can hit Ctrl-F, select responses, enter the value, and you will immediately see which response(s) first provided that value. Ctrl-F can be used in other helpful ways as well. All the other omissions I can deal with, but this one is a huge feature!

I just installed Fiddler Everywhere and I was surprised that I couldn't find the "find sessions" function.  This thread was as close as I could find for help.  Am I missing something?  The filters are a nice addition for searching across headers, etc, but you can't filter on the contents of the body, as the find sessions allowed, correct?  Does seem like a deal breaker to me.  And only after 10 minutes of testing :(
