Free-text Search

Using the magnifying glass in the upper right corner, you can search all columns of the audit log for any pattern, keyword, etc.
Here are some examples of how to enter free text for the filter:

Multiple terms result in any combination of the terms.

  • ozone layer - retrieves ozone and layer appearing in the text.

Multiple terms in quotations result in all occurrences of the terms appearing as you entered them.

  • ozone layer- retrieves the term "ozone layer" appearing together

Operators such as' AND', 'OR', and 'NOT' can be used to further filter. AND retrieves the same results as multiple terms with both terms appearing but not necessarily together.

  • ozone layer
  • ozone + layer
  • ozone AND layer

OR retrieves any occurrence of one term or the other, or both.

  • ozone OR layer

NOT specifies a term excluded from the results retrieved. Results include only 'ozone' and not 'layer'.

  • ozone NOT layer
  • ozone ! layer

Grouping in parentheses can further filter expressions with operators.

  • ((greenhouse OR carbon) AND emissions) - retrieves occurrences of 'greenhouse emissions' OR 'carbon emissions'.

Wildcards search for single or multiple characters in the beginning, middle, or end of a string.

  • la?er - single character wildcard ? retrieves all occurrences of 'layer' and 'later' for example.
  • lay -* multiple character wildcard * retrieves all occurrences of 'lay', 'lays', 'layer', 'layers' for example.
