    Search Techniques on the Cross Provisioning Platform Inventory Page

    In releases earlier than Cross Provisioning Platform Release 15.1R1, if you entered search criteria in the Search field on an inventory page, the matching entry in the Name column only is displayed.

    With Cross Provisioning Platform Release 15.1R1, you can perform the following types of search on all the columns on an inventory page:

    • Column search by using a string—In the Search field located at the top right of an inventory page, you can directly specify the search syntax in the form of a string. All columns that match the specified string are displayed.

      For example, on the Service Orders inventory page, if you specify the search syntax as VPLS, all columns that include VPLS are listed in the search results.

    • Column search using the keywords—In the Search field located at the top right of an inventory page, you can narrow down the search by using keywords and query expressions. The column that matches the search criteria is displayed.

      For example, on the Service Orders inventory page, if you specify the search syntax along with the column name, name:VPLS, only the Name column that includes the string VPLS is listed in the search results.

      Note: The column names are represented in camel case. For example, the keyword for the Last Modified Date column is lastModifiedDate.

      A search syntax can include a column name and a query expression.

      Table 1 provides examples of query expressions that you can enter in the Search field.
