Search All Workspaces

Currently it is only possible to search all Attachment Text across all workspaces.


Workspace Text Search is only against One workspace.

Please support searching all workspaces and similar to Vault Search, use Paging to restrict results to batches of 100

We have a similar requirement.

We would like to search a workspace by a property or a set of properties. The results of this search would prevent the duplication of a data attribute if it already exists.

Example: An auto-generated Product ID needs to have a unique attribute called AAA code. The AAA codes are limited by all alpha-numeric combinations. In addition, certain non-sequential codes in the range of all possible AAA codes have already been assigned and cannot be reused.

We would like the ability to search  the AAA codes used in existing Product IDs to prevent duplicate assignment to new auto-generated Product IDs.
1) One workaround is to hard-code existing values.  
2) Another workaround is to create a separate workspace to store available AAA codes that can be used by the Product ID creation process.

I agree - the pan-Workspace search would be useful.


Will the search facility be expanded to offer an Advanced search mechanism where you could:


1) define the fields in which you want to search

2) do AND searches

3) do OR searches

4) search other tabs within the record other than Item Details ?



I'm not sure if all this will be answered with integration of Inforbix and/or what the timescale for this is ?


However it's done, it would certainly be beneficial to users, especially as PLM360 fills up with data.
