Search Request Process

Search Request Process

The Search Service processes search requests differently based on whether the request comes from the Analyst tool or Business Glossary Desktop.
The following steps describe the search request process:
  1. A user enters search criteria in the Analyst tool or Business Glossary Desktop.
  2. For a search in the Analyst tool, the corresponding Analyst Service sends the search request to the Search Service. For a search in Business Glossary Desktop, Business Glossary Desktop sends the search request to the Search Service.
  3. The Search Service retrieves the search results from the search index based on the search criteria.
  4. The Search Service verifies permissions on each search result and returns objects on which the user has read permission.
The domain administrator must start the Search Service before the Search Service can return any search results. If the Search Service is not running when a user performs a search, an error appears.
