The Search Assistant is integrated in the Repository pane. It searches all sources in the current workspace. The results are
displayed in a tree in the browser window, either by type or by folder, depending on the tab you have selected in the Repository
. The information in the tree is grouped in three levels:
- Project level - shows the projects that contain the objects.
- Folder level - shows the relative folder structure. If there is more than one folder level, they are grouped and displayed
with slashes -
Folder1/Folder2/Folder3(n). The number in brackets indicates the number of search result objects in the folder.
- Object level - shows the objects that are the result of the search.
Note: For information about customizing the search options, see
Configuring the Search Assistant.
