Entity Search

Overview

The entity search interface can find entities by name or entity tag values.

Syntax

A keyword without a colon is considered an entity name filter, a keyword containing a colon is treated as a tag name.

name-filter [tag-name-1:tag-value-2] [tag-name-2:tag-value-2]

The * wildcard is automatically appended to the name-filter, thereby including entities with a name starting with the specified text.

If the search expression contains a tag name, such tags are displayed in the results table.

Wildcards

  • * matches any number of characters.
  • ? matches any one character.

Match

Entity names, tag names and tag values are matched in case-insensitive manner.
