Add GUI-based global search 7.0.1

The global search option in the GUI allows users to search for keywords appearing in objects and navigation menus to quickly access the object and configuration page. Click the magnifying glass icon in the top-left corner of the banner to access the global search.

The global search includes the following features:

  • Keep a history of frequent and recent searches

  • Sort results alphabetically by increasing or decreasing order, and relevance by search weight

  • Search by category

  • Search in Security Fabric members (accessed by the Security Fabric members dropdown menu in the banner)

Examples

In this example, searching for the word ZTNA yields the following results:

  • Firewall policy object 9, which contains ZTNA in the property value, Name. The name of the policy is ZTNA-TCP.

  • ZTNA server object ZTNA-webserver, which contains ZTNA in the property value, Name.

  • ZTNA navigation menu item under Policy & Objects > ZTNA.

Since CMDB objects have a higher search weight (50) than navigation objects (20), the navigation menu result appears at the bottom.

In this example, searching for the address 10.88.0.1 yields the following results:

  • Address object EMS that has a subnet of 10.88.0.1/32, which matches the search term.

  • Virtual IP object Telemetry-VIP that has a mapped IP range of 10.88.0.1, which matches the search term.

  • Address objects all, FIREWALL_AUTH_PORTAL_ADDRESS, and FABRIC_DEVICE that have IP subnets of 0.0.0.0/0, which the searched term falls into.

  • Address group object All_Grp that contains members addresses that have IP subnets of 0.0.0.0/0, which the searched term falls into.

Sorting by Relevance will display address objects that are more closely matched at the top (10.88.0.1), and more loosely matched at the bottom ( 0.0.0.0).
