Search Strings in the VB&R UI

Post by AdrianHinton » Aug 29, 2014 9:49 pm

Hi,

I have two jobs with similar names. Backup-Job and Backup-Job1. When I am using the UI and I want to filter all the jobs using the search bar, can I use any special search strings to filter the jobs? When I search for Backup-Job, the results display both Backup-Job and Backup-Job1. I have tried using quotes such as: "Backup-Job" and 'Backup-Job', but this appears to include the quotes in the search string and no results at all are returned.

Thank you.

Adrian, I'm not aware of any. It is just a plain search for the string you type in.

Thanks Foggy. It would be nice to be able to use some operators in a situation like mine.

I'm wondering whether you're using the search string for sheer convenience or you need to do that on regular basis (like, find the exact job and apply required procedure on that). I'm asking since in the latter case you might achieve what you're after with the use of PS scripting. Thanks.
