Search Service Overview

Search Service Overview

The Search Service manages search in the Analyst tool and Business Glossary Desktop. By default, the Search Service returns search results from a Model repository, such as data objects, mapping specifications, profiles, reference tables, rules, and scorecards.
The Search Service can also return additional results. The results can include related assets, business terms, and policies. The results can include column profile results and domain discovery results from a profiling warehouse. In addition, you can perform a search based on patterns, datatypes, unique values, or null values.
You can associate each Search Service with one Model repository and one profiling warehouse. To perform searches on multiple Model repositories or profiling warehouses, you must create multiple Search Services.
The Search Service performs each search on a search index instead of the Model repository or profiling warehouse. To create the search index, the Search Service extracts information about content from the Model repository and profiling warehouse. You can configure the interval at which the Search Service extracts this information. To enable faster searches, the Search Service indexes all extracted content.
