Advanced Search

Overview

Users can perform advanced searches directly from the Home page (My Processes or Process Models) or the Current Diagram view to find processes shared with them. The search will include not only process names, but also the names of process elements and other properties.

 

Considerations

Separate the words with spaces for multiple-word searches.

Only alphanumeric characters are supported.

The results displayed start with or match the value entered.

Results do not distinguish between upper and lower case letters.

Either from the Home or current diagram view, enter a value in the search box.
