Search of Views

As explained in the section Search, searching on a view is only available if those two conditions are matched:

  1. An administrator has configured a search index for the selected server (see section Search Configuration for more information of how to do this), as the searches are performed on it.

  2. The selected view was indexed during the generation of that index, as the index configured for a server 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 the word “mad” in all the fields of the film view, or only in its field description.

Next to each result there are two links:

  • Index Data: allows to see all the data of the indexed tuple.

    Index data for a particular match

    Index data for a particular match

  • 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”.

Note

When searching the index, you can only see the 1000 first results. You can access all the results from the Query tab.
