Configure the Searchable Fields

Configure the Searchable Fields

You can use the Provisioning tool to configure a field as a searchable field and set the field properties. A search request searches only the fields that you configure as searchable fields.
Multiple searchable fields might affect the performance of the search requests, so configure only the significant fields as searchable fields. For example, configure fields that contain full names, organization names, or email addresses as searchable fields rather than fields that contain country codes, gender codes, or address types.

    https://<MDM Hub Server host name>:<MDM Server port number>/provisioning/
