Filtering vs. Searching

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

Filtering a list is very similar to searching. It requires a new fetch from the underlying database, and filters the entire set of data for this list, not just the currently-visible page.

Unlike searching, filtering enables you to:
  • Constrain the search for a value within a specific column (or field).
  • Combine distinct values for different columns.
  • Choose different filter conditions for each of the active columns.
  • Include different values for a column (A or B or C) to include in the display.
  • Invert the results of the filter (using Not).

You can combine searching and filtering, in either order.
