Check out these exciting enhancements to the Search feature in SBM Work Center, available to you starting in SBM 11.5.
Work Center now supports searching for work items using a regular expression, which is a powerful search method that utilizes pattern matching to help you find work items. To search using a regular expression, select the RegEx option on the Work Center search page, and then enter your search query. For a list of operators that are available, refer to the SBM Work Center Guide or help.
Have you ever used Advanced Search in User Workspace, and wished the same feature was available in Work Center? Well, now it is.
What’s cool about Advanced Search is that you can search all kinds of tables in addition to the primary table (if you have the appropriate privileges): auxiliary tables, archived tables, and notes/attachments.
For example, let’s say I want to sort through all of the string IDs in the IDM application that have to do with the calendar. I select String IDs from the Search in Table list (see above), and then enter “calendar” as my keyword:
Here are my results:
While Advanced Search enables you to search notes and associated attachments, the main keyword search now enables you to search the names and addresses of attached URLs.
Below, you can see that I searched for items containing the keyword “Micro Focus.” In my results, all items with the attached URL named “Micro Focus” appear.
Lastly, you can now choose how many fields you want to appear in each row of your search results. This option is available in your user profile on the Search tab:
If I set this to 5, then 5 fields will appear in a row in my search result:
We hope these search features make your SBM life easier and more efficient. Happy searching!
