Advanced Search

The language used is a query language called XQuery. This language is similar to XML Xpath expressions. Advanced users can use this functionality to search for items. "/MDS_Image" is an example of a query that searches the database for all images.

  1. Click Show XQuery.
  2. Specify the required query as the search criteria to fetch the appropriate records.
  3. Click Search. The Result Area shows the records that match the search criteria.
The advanced search field is populated with the actual query in these situations:
  • When you build a query using free text and attribute input.
  • When you build a query using a shortcut in the navigation bar.
