I just updated to Craft 3.6x, and I noticed that suddenly all my drafts are showing up by default. This confused users, as there were a bunch of them that people had abandoned. But I noticed that the search filter at the top does not apply to drafts. Is there somewhere to change the setting? And is there also a way to show LIVE entries only, by default?
As per 3.6.5, drafts meta data have become searchable (not custom field) and you can (re)index them by running:
php craft resave/entries --drafts --update-search-indexes
In terms of filtering, you need to manually selete Live to hide drafts from the listing.
