About this task

Search all content that is available within your domain(s). Use the various filtering options, such as part of content title or description, domain, and properties to narrow the results, and then if needed, export the results to Excel┬«.

Filtering options include:

  • Part of content title or description

  • Domain

  • Properties

Filter icon options include:

  • Status

  • Template

  • Modified

  • Organic review

  • Restrictions

The filters available in the filter icon are based on your role operations. For example, you will only see the expiry status option if you have access to expired content. The system displays search results for content documents and flows based on your domain access and roles.

SHARED Tip As an alternative to the All content search, you can view content by domain by using the Index. The index groups content in a hierarchical fashion based on the domain to which it is defined. See Searching content using the Index.

When a keyword is provided, the All content search prioritizes the order of results as follows:

  1. Match weight, which allots points according to

    • where the keyword is used, for example, start, mid, or end of a paragraph

    • how often the keyword is used

    • where the keyword exists, for example, more points are allotted when the keyword is in the title than when the keyword is in the description

  2. Content GUID

  3. Content title

When no keyword is provided, the order is by a unique identifier.


  1. On the menu, navigate to Search and click All content.

    SHARED Tip Without using any available filtering options, clicking Search provides a list of all content to which you have access.

  2. If you want to search using a keyword from title or description, follow these steps:

    1. In the search field, enter a keyword used in the content's title or description.

  3. If you want to perform a search by domain or other properties, follow these steps:
