The tab “Search” allows you to search all the data of all the views of the database.
This feature is only available if an administrator has set-up a search index for the selected database (the section Search Configuration explains how to do it). That is because the searches are performed on that index and not querying the views on real time.
When you access to this tab all the indexed views are shown, but you can filter the results entering the desired search term and clicking the search icon.
The tool searches on the values of all the fields of all the indexed views. As result, it displays the views where results were found and the number of results per view. To see a summary of the results of a view, click Details (). As explained in the section Personalization, the administrator can configure the number of results and the fields to be shown for each view, on that summary.
Note that you will only see the information over which you have permissions defined in Virtual DataPort. This way:
- Views with row restrictions are not shown it in the search results.
- Views with column restrictions only show the columns with permissions in the search results.
To search on a particular view and/or access to its complete results, click Load View () to open the Search tab of that view (see section Search).
