Patch for SCCM

Using the Search Tool

You can easily search for updates contained in the top pane. All searches are performed using the Search tool. To initiate a search you type the text you want to find and then press Enter. Only those updates matching the search criteria are displayed; all other updates are hidden.

Tips for Using the Search Tool

The Search tool works only on the information currently visible in the top pane. You can right-click on the column headers to add or remove columns to be searched.

If a filter is applied, only updates matching both the search criteria and the filter criteria are displayed

All partial matches are displayed

The search is not case sensitive

If you want to search for a string containing a space character, put the string in quotation marks.

Example: "Adobe Systems"

If you specify a search string without quotation marks, words separated by a space character are treated as separate search conditions.

Example: Adobe Systems. This will select records that contain either Adobe OR Systems

To search within a specific column, precede the search string with the column name plus a colon character.

Example: Title:Adobe. This will select records in the Title column that contain the term Adobe.

To implement the logical AND operator, precede a condition with "+".

Example: Adobe +Flash. This will select records that contain both Adobe and Flash.

To implement the logical NOT operator, precede a condition with "-".

Example: Adobe -Flash. This will select records that contain Abobe, excluding records that contain Flash.

The use of wildcards is not allowed.

To clear the search criteria, click the icon located on the right side of the search box.
