Central Search for User Interface

Hi Gurus,

do you know something about the Central Search in the User Interface?

What I'm curious to know is where it is called when the page it is built up and what are methods which call it.

Any kind of information can be helpful.

Regards,

Michele

    Hi Michele,

    Hope this information helps.

    Central Search in UI

    The central search allows users to search with one single search criterion without requiring

    navigation to the advanced search screen. With the central search, the user can, for

    instance, search for an account by last name or for a marketing campaign by ID. Central

    searches cannot be deleted u2013 therefore the delete button at the far right is deactivated when

    a central search has been selected.

    I could not see a pull down beside Saved Searches for Central Search.

    Presently only "open a saved search" query and click GO.

    Cheers

    Shiven

    Hi. you have to do the following steps to activate central search:

    1. To display the central search (All Searches Launcher) in the header area of the navigation frame, you need to make the necessary configuration settings in the UI component CRM_WORKAREAHDR. As a prerequisite, activate the component WORKAREA_HEADER for your selected layout profile in Customizing for Customer Relationship Management, by choosing Business Roles Define Navigation Frame .

    2. You configure the header area of your business role in the UI component CRM_WORKAREAHDR and the view WorkAreaHeader, in the UI Configuration Tool. On the Configuration tab page, choose your role configuration key. Choose More Attributes to display the attributes UI_COMPONENT_1, UI_COMPONENT_2, and UI_COMPONENT_3 of the three sections in the header area.

    3. To display the central search at the right-hand side of the header area, enter the following value:

    UI_COMPONENT_3:Window=CRM_ALLSEARCHES.CRM_ALLSEARCHES/LauncherWindow;horizontalAlignment=right;End of the code.

    4. For every business object that is to be supported by the central search, make the necessary settings in Customizing for Customer Relationship Management, by choosing UI Framework Technical Role Definition Define Central Search .

    5. If you want to make business objects invisible at business role level in the central search, make the necessary settings in Customizing for Customer Relationship Management, by choosing Business Roles Define Business Role .
