I have a use case that I think is pretty common, but haven’t been able to find an existing feature either here or in Discourse itself that fits the feature I’ll describe.
Essentially I have the need to get notified for new topics that could potentially span more than one category for specific keywords. My use case is the Elastic forums at https://discuss.elastic.co/ wherein I want to get notified about any topic that includes the string
puppet, which can come up in the Elasticsearch category, Kibana category, et cetera.
Right now I’m using a script an Elastic employee wrote to capture these, but I’ve spoken to multiple non-technical people who have a similar need, so it feels like encapsulating this functionality in Discourse proper or a plugin seems like an apt fit.
Is there a feature I’m overlooking that could provide this, is it too specific for native integration, or is this something that would be worth doing?
