Finding Items → Using Search Features → Searching for Items by ID
You can search for primary items in the selected application by item ID. You can type the entire item ID, including prefix, or only the numeric ID. All projects in the selected application are searched, and all active and inactive primary items that meet the search criteria are returned.
To search by ID, perform the following steps:
Type the exact ID number of the item that you are searching for. For example, if you are searching for DEF00015, you can type 15 to return this item. Leading zeros are automatically prepended to your numeric search criteria.
Asterisks (*), percent signs (%), and underscores (_) serve as wildcard characters. Wildcard characters are valid only on the numeric portion of the item ID, however, and not the prefix portion.
A wildcard character matches zero or more consecutive characters.
To find all items, type a wildcard character (*, %, or _).
To find multiple items, separate each item ID with a space or comma.
Leading and trailing spaces are removed when you perform a search.
Items matching your search criteria appear on the Search Results page. The type of item and the search criteria specified in the ID Search box appear as the subheading on the Search Results page. Your administrator determines which fields appear on the Item List pane for ID search results.
