Performing Filtered Searches on Tables
Using the Quick Search or by choosing search filters, you can filter any table of information, such as the Virtual Machines tab.
The Quick Search allows you to filter tables on all of the tabs in the Infrastructure, Applications, and Storage views, as well as several other lists such as IP pools and organizations. Just enter a few characters in the search field to narrow your view. The quick search uses a default set of the most common properties for each list. Hover over the icon to learn what properties are searched.

While the Quick Search uses a set of default properties, you can also choose filters to narrow the current view. To learn more about each filter, see Properties Reference.
To choose filters for your search:
- Click Show Advanced Filters.
- Click the drop-down menu for the type of filter and select the filter you want.
The list of filters changes depending on the tab you choose.
- Depending on the selected filter, different criteria are available in the next drop-down menu such as (this is a partial list only):
- doesn't contain
- doesn't equal
- not on
You can use the following variables in this field:
- * for a replacement of one or more characters
- ? to replace a single character
Note: If you want to search for a VM that contains * or ? in its name and you want to use either of those characters in your search, enter \* or \?
The information section displays items that contain the information you requested.
If nothing matches the selected filter, the information section is empty.
