Search resources

The banner of every screen includes the Smart Search feature, which enables you to find resource-specific information such as specific instances of resource names, serial numbers, WWNs (World Wide Names), and IP and MAC addresses.

The default search behavior is to focus on the resource you are currently viewing. However, to broaden the scope of your search across all resources, you must select the option to search Everything, which searches all resources.

Search the current resource

  1. Click in the Smart Search box.

  2. Select Everything.

  3. Enter your search text and press Enter.

Some resources might not include the option to choose between the current resource or everything, in which case the default search is for everything.

When you start typing, search suggestions are provided based on pattern matching and previously-entered search criteria.

  • You can either select a suggestion (the screen displays data containing that selection) or click Enter.

  • If your search term is a resource, then the list of resources in a master pane is filtered to match your search input.

    If your search term is a resource, then the list of resources in a master pane is filtered to match your search input.

  • Enter complete words or names as your search criteria. Partial words or names might not return the expected results.

  • If you enter a multi-word search term, results show matches for all words you enter.

  • Enclose a search term in double quotes () if the search term contains spaces.

When you find what you are looking for in the search results, which are organized by type, select the item to navigate to it.
