Sub-Search Example

Sub-searching returns similar results to content full text searching. However, as it is a very processor-intensive type of search, it should be used for “one-off” searches only. If this type of search is required on a regular basis for a given Data Definition, content full text searching should be configured. See “Content Full Text Searchable” for the steps required to configure content full text searching for a Data Definition and associated Search Template.

Sub-searching can be performed when it has been enabled in the Search Template in Management Studio. See “Allow text sub search

When sub-searching is available, the sub-search text box is displayed. Enter a value in the sub- search text box and click Start Search.

  1. Perform a search as described in Search Example
  2. In the Sub-search text box, enter the text you want to search for.

Note: If this text box is not displayed then it is not available for the selected Search Template. To configure the Search Template for sub-searching, edit the Search Template and select the option Allow text sub search. (See “Allow text sub search)

  1. In this example, search for the word procedure.
