Support: How to use the Technical Notes 101 search

Question & Answer


This article explains how to use the 101 Technical Notes Search pages. 


How to use the search
Users can use the Search bar on each Technical Notes page to search a database of all public technical notes for that product.
Note: The search table auto-populates as you type, so you do not have to click enter to run your search.
Sorting the columns
The search table includes columns for the Last Updated Date, Title, Abstract, Versions, and Component. You can sort the content in the table by ascending or descending values in any column by clicking the arrows beside the column title, but you can sort by only one column at a time.
Advanced searching tips
The search returns articles that contain all of the words in the search in any of the columns in any order, so searching on fewer keywords returns more results. The search considers a word as anything separated by a space, so punctuation is included with a word if not separated by a space. Because the search considers all columns, you can specify components or versions you want to search on. The search is not capitalization-sensitive.
You can use double quotation marks ("") to look for specific word combinations. For example, if you search "In QRadar", the table does not return the article titled "QRadar: New Custom Event Properties not visible in Log Activity" because "QRadar" and "in" are not adjacent. You can combine multiple phrase searches or phrase searches with word searches
