Siren Search

Siren Search helps you explore your data across all entities of the data model. It displays data in a table with the best matching documents at the top and can be configured for mobile device display.

You can search for specific text, date ranges, and field values. Set up dynamic filters to map fields from different data model entities and search and display them as one. You can send data to a graph to view in the graph browser.

You can start a search by entering text or activating dynamic filters. The search term matches against the entire data model. This works in the same way as the global search in the Dashboard app.

To get started:

  1. From the navigation menu, click Search.

  2. In the search bar, enter text. The search results appear in a table.

To view more information about a search result, click the record viewer button.

You can use dynamic filters to map the search with a more specific pattern.

To use dynamic filters with Siren Search:

  1. In the upper-left corner, click the filter button.

  2. Configure the dynamic filters. For information about using dynamic filters, see Dynamic filters.

  3. Click Apply filters.

The search is filtered based on the dynamic filters selections.

To close the dynamic filters sidebar, click the filter button. Your search records stay filtered until you remove the filters.

Filtering by selection

You can filter your search results to your selections only.

  1. In the search results, select one or more records.

  2. On the toolbar, click Filter by selection.

  3. Optional: To make all search results reappear, click Filter by selection again.

Configuring columns

Add and configure columns. Configure the columns' appearance by device type, and how to represent a record based on the associated entity table. A record can be represented by a field value or by a perspective from a template script.

To open column management, in the upper-right corner, click the settings button.

You can select the device types you want Search highlights to appear on.

Adding and configuring columns
