Search and filter

Object lists support an extensive search and filter capability. Each list has both a default filter and user-defined custom filters.

Filter list: The filters defined for the current object list. As shipped, each page has a default filter. One or more user-defined custom filters can be manually added to the list. Click the down arrow and select the filter of choice. Once selected, the object list reflects the filter criteria.


Find box: The current search criteria for the default filter.


All Projects list: Restrict search criteria for the default filter to specified projects. By default, CloudBees CD/RO searches all projects.


Tags list: Restrict search criteria for the default filter to specified tags. For more information, refer to Tagging Objects in CloudBees CD/RO.

Default filter

This filter is used to search object names. Enter all or part of an object name in the Find box on the object list. You can restrict your search further by specifying projects and tags. The list content dynamically changes based on the criteria. The criteria are active until another term is entered and cleared when you navigate away from the object list.

Custom filters

Custom filters give you the ability to define finer-grained search criteria than the default filter provides. You can save custom filters, so they persist and are available on subsequent visits to the list. When using custom filters, the scope of the filter is the object list; there are no global custom filters.

You create custom filters using the new filter icon.
