Search Syntax

You can enter free-text criteria to filter lists.

Some lists (such as hosts, connections, monitoring, and events) support searching by specific criteria, with syntax like the following:


You can include multiple criteria in a search:


You can specify multiple values either by repeating a criteria with different values, or by delimiting the values with a pipe:



Use backslash to escape parentheses and other reserved characters in values:

​​(criteria=value with \(parentheses\))​​

Search examples:

  • Find connections with the tag ​Name=Example Host​​ - (Tag=Name\=Example Host)

  • Find host entries containing both "test" and SSH service(s) - test (Service=SSH)

  • Find hosts with SSH or RDP services - (Service=SSH|RDP)



Type an open parenthesis in the search to see all the supported criteria. Note that not all pages support criteria.
