Search of Views¶
As explained in the section Search, searching on a view is only available if those two conditions are matched:
- An administrator has configured a search index for the selected database (see section Search Configuration for more information of how to do this), as the searches are performed on it.
- The selected view was indexed during the generation of that index, as the index configured for a database may not contain all its views.
It allows searching on a specific view regardless of its fields, or in a specific field. For instance, you could search for “Technology” in the Department view, or for “Technology” in the field “name” of the Department view.
Next to each result there are two links:
- Index Data: allows to see all the data of the indexed tuple (see Index data for a particular Department).
- Live Data: allows to see the current data of the tuple. It uses the primary key of the tuple to query the Virtual DataPort server and shows the result in a “pop-up”. If the view has associations, they can be browsed in the “pop-up” (see Live data for a particular Department with associations to browse).
