Many text fields on search pages allow you to use an asterisk
(*) to match characters in a string. For example, specifying
netscape, and so on.
If you want to search for non-alphanumeric characters (including
the asterisk character), enclose the search string in quotation marks. For
example, to search for the string:
Find an asterisk (*)
"Find an asterisk (*)"
Note that in text fields that allow a wildcard, you
must use the wildcard if you want to match a partial string.
For example, if you are searching the audit log for all audit records that
involve page views (that is, the message is Page View), searching for
Page returns no results. Instead, specify
In some fields you can search for all or part of the field
contents without using asterisks. In these cases, you must use quotation marks
around a search string to make exact matches--otherwise, the system performs a
partial match. For example, if you were to search such a field for the string
Scan Completed with Detection without using quotation
marks, the system would return records where the field contains the following
strings as well as those where the field exactly matches the search string:
Scan Completed, No Detections
Scan completed With Detections
