Embarcadero Connect provides search boxes on several pages, as well as a global search box. To use the subpage searches, start typing in the search box. As you type, the search results will start to match what you have typed. To use any global search box, just enter your search terms and press     ↵.

If you are a social user, using the global search box you get a combination of the search results that you get when you use the searches for glossaries, terms, people, ER objects, and data sources. If you are a non-social user, the global search box lets you perform a simple search for ER objects.

Both simple and advanced searches are executed against a search index that contains all searchable text properties of the ER objects in the Reporting Repository database. Super users can configure the search index so that searches ignore certain fields.

Simple searches check all the searchable properties of any ER object in the Reporting Repository database for a partial match. After a simple search, Embarcadero Connect provides a table with the matching ER objects. Each row in the search results provides a link to the ER object description page of the matching ER object, so that you can view more details on that ER object. At the top of the page you can click one of the letters to filter the search results to only those ER objects beginning with the chosen letter.

If the standard search features are not enough for your use case, you can use the advanced search feature instead to look to ER objects, which allows you to refine your search with additional parameters and search string syntax features. You can configure your advanced search results page (click Configure.gif), and you can save your advanced searches (click AddToFavorites.gif) to access them later from the Favorite Searches page, where you can email them, print them, and share them.
