Searching objects

There are 3 different ways to search and find objects in the Xstudio repository.

By name

All the trees in XStudio include an indexing system which allows to search in real time, an entity by its name in the tree . To experiment it by yourself, start by entering some text in the Search field of the tree of your choice. This works on any tree in XStudio.

TODO
TODO

To automatically select an item to search in the tree, you can move up and down within the suggestion list, using the arrow keys, and press Enter to validate your selection or just click on the item in the list.

You can have an exact match by entering the complete text in the Search field of the tree of your choice.

By Id

The data model gives a unique identifier for each entity managed by XStudio. The Ids look like:

Template Represents
FL_<id>Folder
SU_<id>SUT
R_<id> Requirement
S_<id> Specification
T_<id> Test
TC_<id>Test case
C_<id> Campaign
CS_<id>Session (Campaign session)
ES_<id>Exploratory session
D_<id> Bug
TA_<id>Task
US_<id>User
UG_<id>Team (User Group)
SC_<id>Schedule
AG_<id>Agent
DO_<id>Document
PR_<id>Project
SP_<id>Sprint
CT_<id>Category
CM_<id>Company
SR_<id>SQL report
A_<id> Asset


Ids are also available from XStudio’s GUI (in Details tab you have an Identifier field that corresponds to <id> in the templates.

To search for an entity from its Id, just type the Id in the Search Id field and press Enter.
