Search Incident Management

The following explains how to search for objects in Incident Management. An object refers to any record created in your Incident Management app, including incidents. An object type is the category of data collected. For example, Incident is the object type, whereas INC-2018-31 Unauthorized Entry is the object.

  1. Click the search text field in the nav bar, enter the name of an object, then press Enter on your keyboard. 
    Entering keywords in the search bar.
  2. Review the search results, which are organized by object name. The results also display the objects' current workflow state.

      • By Dimension (note that this filter is not relevant to the Incident Management application); 
      • By Description;

      • If you're adding a plain text filter, enter one or more keywords into the text box. All special characters, except the @ and ! symbols, will be ignored.
