I’m aware of Filtering/searching for entries by category in the control panel, but that doesn’t work for:


…where ‘String’ is the entry type name or handle, or…


…where Int is the entries table’s typeId number.

Is something like this possible with some other syntax?

I can add Entry Type to the list scope and sort by it, but that’s not what I’m hoping for.

Out-of-the box, Craft doesn't offer such filters, but adding them isn't that hard using a module.

You need to listen to 2 events:

Something like this should work (although I haven't tested):

    function(\craft\events\RegisterElementSearchableAttributesEvent $event) {
        $event->attributes[] = 'entryType';
        $event->attributes[] = 'typeId';

    function (\craft\events\DefineAttributeKeywordsEvent $event) {
        /** @var \craft\elements\Entry $entry */
        $entry = $event->sender;

        if ($event->attribute === 'entryType') {
            $event->keywords = $entry->type->handle;
        } elseif ($event->attribute === 'typeId') {
            $event->keywords = $entry->type->id;
