Universal Search in SnapLogic

Overview

The Universal Search enables you to search through numerous sources of information about SnapLogic Pipelines and Snaps. You can search in SnapLogic DesignerManager, and Dashboard from the following sources:

  • Documentation: Search through articles from the SnapLogic documentation portal.
  • SnapLogic Community: Search through posts from customers, partners, and SnapLogic and responses from SnapLogic experts and fellow users.
  • Configured Snap: Search for existing Snaps from across multiple Projects. The results display configured Snaps in regularly executing Pipelines from the Projects to which you have access. 
  • Pipelines: Search for existing Pipelines from across multiple Projects. The results display high quality Pipelines in the Projects to which you have access. Pipelines deemed as high quality have successfully executed repeatedly, unlike the Pipeline Catalog which returns all Pipelines to which you have access.
