Known Indirect Subclasses
@PublicSpi can expect
that programs compiled against a given version will remain binary compatible with later versions of the
@PublicSpi as per each product's API policy (clients should refer to each product's API policy for
the exact guarantee -- usually binary compatibility is guaranteed at least across minor versions).
@PublicSpiinterfaces and classes are specifically designed to be implemented/extended by clients. Hence, the guarantee of binary compatibility is different to that of
@PublicApielements (if an element is both
@PublicSpi, both guarantees apply).
Generates the possible values for a field.
Will return a string representation of only the possible values that match the value prefix for this clause.
Will return a string representation of only the possible values that match the value prefix for this clause. This should not return more results than specified in maxNumResults. If it is possible this should use the maxNumResults to efficiently generate the results.
The contract of this method is that if the valuePrefix exactly (minus case) matches the suggestion then we suggest it. This will allow users to verify in their own minds that even though they have typed the full value, it is still valid.
|searcher||the user preforming the search.|
|jqlClauseName||the jql clause name that was entered by the user, represents the identifier that was used to find this values generator. Note: for custom fields this can be used to identify the custom field we are dealing with.|
|valuePrefix||the portion of the value that has already been provided by the user.|
|maxNumResults||the maximun number of results to return.|
