Transactional Search and Results Pattern Group

Description Return to Top

The scope of a single transactional search panel is limited to one business object and provides a view of up-to-date data pulled from live tables. Transactional search is located either within the local area of the UI Shell or at the top of the local area. All Search patterns can be used in conjunction with the Search Multiple Objects pattern.

Search Multiple Objects Place an object selector above a search panel to enable users to search for more than one business object. Users can search for one object type at a time.
Search Results Search results are presented after a user runs a transactional search.
Shortcutting Use shortcutting as an alternative to search results when the user can search by a unique identifier to yield a single result.
Saved Searches Saved searches can appear in the absence of a search region if users need multiple views of a table but are unlikely to edit the search criteria.
Table Filters Filters on the search results table that can be used in conjunction with or instead of a search region.
