This topic provides instructions for using the search service.
Search queries are entered by using the Enter Generic Query page.
To access this page you require the ui/report/admin permission.
You can view all searches and reports that are currently in progress on the appliance. To do this, From the main menu, click the Administration icon. The Administration page displays. From the Model section, click Search Management.
The Search Management page shows the searches and reports that are currently in progress on the appliance, depending on the permissions that you have been assigned. A system user can see searches belonging to all users. A normal user can see just their own searches. This behavior is controlled by using the model/search/list and model/search/cancel permissions. See Search Permissions for more information.
The page shows searches from all sources, including those submitted through the Generic Query page, ones due to reports, and ones that are implicitly triggered while browsing in the UI. System users can also see searches performed by patterns, which are considered to belong to the Reasoning Subsystem user.
The Search Management page lists any searches that you are permitted to view. Any search that you can cancel is shown with a Cancel button at the right hand side of its row. To cancel a search, click the Cancel button that corresponds to the search that you want to cancel.
When the search has been cancelled, the window in which the search was entered is refreshed with a Search Cancelled message.
You can also cancel a search that you have just started by navigating away from the search-in-progress spinner.
