Using the Search Field
You use the Search within this data catalog in the Home tab or the Search within <data object> boxes in the various data catalog objects tabs to enter a search text and retrieve all data objects matching the search text in the data catalog.
- Access the Search within <data object> field from the Home tab or the Data Assets, Data Entities, Attributes, Filename Patterns, Custom Attributes, Glossary, Terms, Jobs, or Schedules tabs.
Enter the search text. This text can be a complete or partial text. In the search bar of the Home tab, when you type the first three characters, the system suggests the possible texts. If a suggestion matches your requirement, you can select the text.
The search is not case-sensitive.
You can use
*anywhere in your search text as a wildcard. For example, you can use
resource*to search for resource_type, resource_name, resource_uri and so on.
*res*to search for resource_type, resource_name, resource_uri and schedule_cron_expression.
More search examples:
- Click the search icon in the Search within <data object> box, or press enter. The results matching the search text are listed.
- Use Filters and Custom Filters to refine your search results.
- Use the sort drop down to display the results in order of Relevance, Name - Ascending, Name - Descending, Last Updated - Ascending, or Last Updated - Descending.
Use the Delete button to delete one or more selected data entities from the search results.
When you delete more than 10 data entities at a time, a delete job is created. You can view the job details by clicking the job link in the notification message that appears when the delete job is initiated or by clicking Jobs on the Home tab.
Run the SearchCriteria operation to search within a data catalog.
