Working With Items → Searching for Work Items
Work Center's powerful search feature enables you to quickly find work items and reports. The Work Center search utilizes an indexed word-based search instead of searching for strings. New entries in the system are not accessible until after they have been indexed. On-premise administrators can adjust the indexing interval using SBM Configurator.
To search for items, click the Search () icon located on the Work Center toolbar. The search page opens, as shown in the following figure.
You can search by either:
Search for work items by the ID and prefix or just by the ID's numeric portion.
Search for work items or reports by single words or phrases. Values in most field types can be searched.
Search for work items using a regular expression. To view a list of supported regular expression operators, see Regular Expression Operators.
To disable this option, click Settings or change the Search settings in your user profile. See Search Settings.
