we see a somewhat unexpected search behaviour in our Omero instance. I typically upload images into existing projects. These projects are owned by someone else, while I create a new dataset and upload the images not on behalf of someone, but simply with my user. If I now search (“Explore data”) within a specific group for my datasets/images, I do get an empty result:
However, when I search for the user that owns the project itself, then the result contains my datasets and images too.
So the question is, if this searching behaviour works as intended. It is at least not what we are expecting and we wonder if this is something that can be modified in the Omero configuration.
This topic might be related to what has been described earlier (https://forum.image.sc/t/how-to-get-all-the-projects-and-datasets-of-an-omero-user/47245. @will-moore wrote there that the search should at least find the datasets. But for us this is not the case, as seen above.
Any hints are much appreciated.
