The page allows you to search for any supported object type.
Enter information into the fields as follows:
Use the drop-down menu to select the object you wish to search.
Click Add Criteria one or more times to further define the criteria for your search.
Click Add Custom Criteria one or more times to enter custom criteria to further define your object search. Type the property name to search, and then select your search operator and the search value.
Click OK after filling in the fields and to go to the Search Results page.
Only the first 450 characters of a property string are searchable. For example, if your property value happens to contain 1500 characters and the information you are trying to find is 800 characters into the property string, the search mechanism will not find it.
When defining a search on this page, property path references are not allowed in search parameters. However, property path references are allowed in the Home page Quick View filters.
The maximum number of search results that will be returned on the Search Results page is controlled by the server property
ec_ui/maxIds/default. The out-of-the box default for this property is 1000. This default can be overridden for a specific object type. For example, the maximum number of jobs to display is controlled using the server property
ec_ui/maxIds/jobthat is set to 500 out-of-the box.
The default page size of 100 will be used to display the search results on the Search Results page, unless a user-specified page size is set (this user-specified setting will be used). You can save a user-specified page setting by changing the value in the Records Per Page drop-down field at the bottom of the Search Results page.
The Records Per Page drop-down options are controlled through a server property
ec_ui/pageSizeOptionswith 10, 20, 50,100, 250, or 500 as the out-of-the-box value.
Any changes to the properties within the server property sheet
ec_ui/maxIdsor the server property
ec_ui/pageSizeOptionstake effect after you log in again.
