The Search option allows you to search within your dashboard, visualization, or in the Discover tool using specific criteria. Pre-selected fields from the Discover tool are available to use for searching. To see pre-selected fields, click the search box and select a field and operator from the drop-down menu. You can then type in a search term to narrow the results. 



Multiple filters can be applied to a dashboard, visualization, or in the Discover tool at a time. Click Add filter to select a field to use for filtering the data. Select a Field and Operator from the respective drop-down boxes, then enter a value to filter by. Click Save to apply the filter. 

Change all filters
