Search for Changesets/Milestones

Can we please have search for changesets/milestones like we do for tickets? Even if it's only support for just title/updated since/before, it would be perfect.

Alternatively, could we have a front end for the json export mentioned here?

This is for a backup script that I'm working on internally. It pulls down tickets that were updated after the specified time (so that we're not pulling down all the tickets every time). It also pulls down all milestones, changesets etc. While this isn't a problem now, in 12/24 months we'll have considerably more data in the system and it could become quite resource intensive.

I've looked into using the RSS feeds, but the API is much more suited for pulling down all the data in a cron job once a week.

(For context, the downloaded data is saved in a mySQL database which is queried to generate reports. This was the initial reason for the download, but backup is an added bonus)

    We're discussing a front end to the export. It's currently pretty server intensive to generate for some of the older accounts and not a very common request. I may have left changesets out though since those are usually stored somewhere else (in your source control tool, for example).

    There's also an API call for getting ticket numbers that have been updated since a specified date. It was added recently for LighthouseKeeper, but may not have been documented properly. I'll dig up the info.

    The changesets are in our source control system, but having them in the Lighthouse backup allows for us to query all the data at once, as there's a relation between tickets and commits.

    I've been using the updated since search option for tickets, and it's really handy. That's what I'd love to see for milestones and changesets, too.
