To find all artifacts that contain a particular set of keywords:

  1. Select search icon Window > Show View > Other... > OSEE > Quick Search, to open the view.
  2. Type your search string in the Enter Search String combo box, or use the pull-down list to select a previously entered search expression.
    Special characters such as (' ', !, ", #, $, %, (, ), *, +, ,, -, ., /, :, ;, <, >, ?, @, [, \, ], ^, {, |, }, ~, _) are assumed to be word separators unless By Id option is selected. When By Id option is selected, (, and ' ') are treated as separators.

    For example:

    • When By Id is not selected, hello.world will be translated to hello and world. The search will match attributes with hello and world keywords.
    • When By Id is selected, (A+ABG7jFm+0BKaVZIxfqOQ,AFABG7jFm+0BKaVZIxfqOQ PX1FH) will be interpreted as 2 GUID(s) and 1 HRID. The search will match artifacts containing A+ABG7jFm+0BKaVZIxfqOQ and AFABG7jFm+0BKaVZIxfqOQ as its GUID or PX1FH as its HRID.

  3. Finish entering your search options, (for example, to scope the search to include deleted artifacts, check the include deleted option), and click Search or press Enter from the combo box to execute the search.
  4. The Search view displays the results of your search. Right-click on any item in the Search view to open a pop-up menu that allows you perform various operations on the artifacts such as copy search results to the clipboard or reveal a selected artifact in Artifact Explorer. To open one of the listed artifacts, double-click it or select Open from its pop-up menu.
