Global search

The Global Search Configuration defines which business views are searched when a search string is entered in the global search page, and how they are searched.

To configure the global search:

  1. Double-click the Global Search Configuration node under the application. The Application opens on its Global Search Configuration section.

  2. Configure the global search page:

    • Select Display "Search For" Dropdown to allow the user to select which of the business views he wants to search. If you do not display this dropdown, all business views will be searched.

    • Select Sort Business Views Alphabetically to have the business views sorted in the drop down and in the search results alphabetically. Otherwise, their position in the Searched Business View applies.

  3. Click the Add Business View to Search Add Business View to Search button in the toolbar. The Create New Global Search Business View wizard opens.

  4. In this wizard, enter the following values:

    • Name: Internal name for the business view search.

    • Label: Label for the searched business view that appears in the "Search For" Dropdown. If you leave this label empty, a label is automatically generated based on business view label, the view and search types.

    • Business View: Business view from the application to search for.

    • View Type: View type into which the search should take place. By default, the search takes place on the Golden Data. Select a different view to search for master data or erroneous records.

    • Search Type: Type of search used to search the business view. You can use the Full-Text search type or select a search form defined for the root business entity of the business view.

    • Search Parameter: If a search form is selected in the Search Type the search text is bound to this search parameter used in the search form query.

    • Max Results: Maximum number of results displayed in the search results for this business view.

  5. Use the Move Up and Move Down buttons to order the searched business views in the table.

  6. Repeat the three previous steps to create additional search configurations for more business views.
