- Enter a search term of at least three characters. You can enter more than one word, without quote marks.
Searches are not case sensitive.
- The search results will display any device that contains the search term in the Hostname, Description, IP Address, Last User, or External IP Address fields of the device.
- Alternatively, you can target your search by prefixing your search terms with field identifiers. You can enter the field identifiers manually or select any of them from a drop-down list by clicking on the down arrow to the left of the Search field.
The following field identifiers are available:

Searching for hostname:printserver will list all devices that have printserver in their hostname.
Searches are not case sensitive.
- When using field identifiers in your search, and the search term contains a space, quote marks need to be used.
If the description of the device is Front Office, you can target your search the following way: "desc:front office".
- When using one of the user-defined fields (UDFs) as a field identifier in your search, make sure that you enter an Account-level UDF. Site-level UDFs are not supported in the search. If the search term contains a space, quote marks need to be used.
"User-Defined Field 1:Joe" will list all devices where User-Defined Field 1 displays Joe.
If User-Defined Field 1 has been renamed to Assigned User at the Account level, you will see "Assigned User:" in the field identifier drop-down list. Searching for "Assigned User:Joe" will list all devices where Assigned User displays Joe.
If you want to search for Joe Smith in the Assigned User UDF field, you can target your search the following way: "Assigned User:Joe Smith".
