How to Use Specific Search to Narrow Search Results

The global search option provides multiple options to narrow your search parameters to provide more specific results

There are 2 ways to get a more specific search result using global search.

  1. Use the filters on the left hand side to specify the filer(s), file age range, date range, document type or file size
  2. Use search queries in the specific search bar at the top of the page. Clicking the guidance for search link will show you the query options. 

Guidance For Search - how to structure your query

 

Searching for a specific path?

path="/<full path>/"

Searching for files or folders within a folder?

path~="/<full path or partial path >/*"

Looking for an exact file?

file="filename"

Looking for a file that is similar to a specific file name?

file~="filename"

Auditing files or folders within a folder?

path~="/<full path>/*"

Auditing a folder?

file="folder name"

Need to combine two searches together?

Use AND between both queries.

i.e path="/<full path>/" AND file="filename
