Just type the value you want to find. See samples below.
Search by attribute
Search by attribute in DBmaster works using the following format
[value]. Attribute can be a standard one or a meta-field. Operator can be one of the
following '=', '<>', '>', '<', '>=', or '<='. logical operations like
and/or are not yet supported.
Wildcard searchYou can use wildcard in attribute names and values. DBMaster uses the following symbols:
- The question mark (?) may be used to represent a single character in a search expression. For example, searching for the term 'ho?se' would yield results which contain such words as 'house' and 'horse'.
- An asterisk (*) may be used to specify zero or more characters. For example, searching for the term 'h*s' would yield results which contain such words as 'homes', 'houses', 'horses', etc.
Fuzzy vs. strict searchImportant note: if an attribute or value does not include any wildcard symbols, DBMaster will automatically add asterisks around the attribute and/or value. For example, if you search for
data=ho, DBMaster will replace it with
*data*=*ho*and will search for objects that have (but don't necessarily equal) 'ho' symbols in any attribute that includes 'data' in it; search results will include objects where
'Sensitive Data'='horses', etc. To search within a particular attribute or for a strict value add double quotes, e.g. "Data Domain"=house will find objects that contain house in attribute Data Domain.
- To search for attributes with no values use
- To search for attributes with any non-empty value use
- To search for date attributes use format 'MM/dd/yy', e.g.
- To search for boolean/logical attributes use values 'yes'/'no' e.g.
