Searching for Event Entries

You can easily search for log entries contained in Event History. All searches are performed using the Search tool.

To initiate a search you type the term you want to find and then press Enter or click the search icon (). Only those event entries matching the search criteria are displayed; all other event entries are hidden.

Tips for Using the Search Tool

The Search tool works only on the information currently visible in the pane. The Limit results to previous (days) option can be used to adjust the amount of information that is displayed.

If a Smart Filter is applied, only event entries matching BOTH the search criteria and the smart filter criteria are displayed.

All partial matches are displayed. For example, if you search for entries named data, any entry with "data" in its name will be considered a match (e.g. Synchronize core data files, database, etc.).

A semicolon (;) can be used to concatenate multiple search terms into one search string. For example, specifying "maintenance;scheduler" will return all items containing either of the two terms.

The use of wildcards in the Search tool is not allowed.
