6.0 Using Find to Search for Elements

The Find feature allows you to search for elements in the Operations Center console. This functionality is also available when performing other tasks, such as creating behavior models or selecting a group of elements.

By default, search results are limited to 1,000 items for performance reasons. If you are getting a result set that is this large or greater, we recommend narrowing the search criteria. If you are not able to refine the search, we suggest setting up a Service View. For information about building a custom view, see the Operations Center 5.6 Custom Drawing and Layout Guide and the Operations Center 5.6 Service Modeling Guide.

The following sections explain in detail how to use various Find features to search for elements. Enhanced searching by metamodel classes and properties is explained in Section 6.3, Using Metamodel Classes or Properties as Search Criteria.
