To find a record, you can either enter a search text in a search box or use a query form. The search results show the most important details of the records. You can see more details by opening the records.
You can use the search box to search and filter records. However, to repeatedly perform the same search and filter operation, it is efficient to create and save a query.
When you use queries, you can search within a specific business entity for which the query is created. Whereas, when you use the search box, depending on your environment, in addition to searching within a business entity, you might be able to search across all business entities.
The search options that you see depend on what was configured by the MDM administrator. You must have the required privileges for the business entities within which you want to search for records.
