If you are adding filters to an existing search, the list contains only items appropriate to the initial filter.

For example, if the initial filter is on diagram properties, the list for any subsequent filters for the search only contains the Diagram option.

 

 

Include

Select each field item to include in your search (select the checkbox).

 

 

Field

Identify the name of the field to search.

The list presents items specific to the filter Search On item.

 

 

 

Fields and Conditions

Condition

Specify the condition of the search parameter.

 

Value

Type a value pertaining to the selected element field.

For example, the value could be a date for DateCreated or a text value for other fields.

The search term can contain multiple values separated by commas.

 

Required

Select a particular field to generate a result set that must contain your search term in that field.

 

 

Check All

Select all the items to include them in the search definition.

 

 

Uncheck All

Deselect all the items to omit them from the search definition.

 

 

OK

Apply the filter.

The fields selected are added to the search definition.

 

 

Notes

You can add multiple search definitions as necessary; however, if you select the Required field in multiple definitions the search rapidly becomes impractical
Multiple search definitions are better for 'and/or' searches
