Search for Entities

Click Search button in the actions toolbar to activate a search bar.

Users can enter any text string in order to search for a desired entry in the corresponding collection. Once the string is entered, the search is then performed automatically, with no further action needed from the user. In order to revert to the original (full) list, the string should be deleted.

Search Criteria

Searches can be based both upon the entity's name, or upon tags and other descriptive metadata associated with it. In the specific case of Materials, the material's chemical formula can also be searched, for instance.


In the example below, we demonstrate how to search for workflows containing the phrase "band structure" in the name. We enter this keyword string in the search bar at the top of the workflows collection. Only one result is returned in this case, and the screen is then reverted to its original appearance upon deletion of the search string.
