Search for objects
Search for objects by clicking on Insight > Object search. You can enter enter either IQL or FreeText in the text box:
- FreeText will search the text of all objects and object attributes for relevant strings, but will not search any non-string data.
- IQL can be used to create more advanced queries using logical statements, placeholders, and references. In the object search screen, the built-in autocomplete will assist you in creating IQL searches. For more information, see IQL - Insight Query Language.
When you launch any of your favorite search filters, you get a smoother search feedback when the results are being displayed.
