Query Based Searching in Zoom

In Zoom 6.0 and above, support has been added for query-based searching, where the users can issue complex searches without setting up the advance search parameters. An intuitive syntax is provided to build up the queries.

Syntax:

As user start typing in the top search panel, drop-down containing the list of possible values will be displayed, to help the user completing the syntax.

Example:  

1. Search for all assets having IPTC City = Adelaide

  • Start typing city
  • Click on city from the auto-complete drop-down

Searching for IPTC City

 

  • As City is selected, It will show a set of values corresponding to the selected metadata property.

  • Click on Adelaide, it will add value to the syntax.
  • Click on Search Icon – It will fetch all the assets having city Adelaide.

2. Searching for values in range like all assets having IPTC Rating between 2 - 5

  • Start typing rating 
  • Select IPTC Rating from drop down
  • Now it will show a pipe | symbol for the metadata value.
  • Add 2 on the left of pipe and 5 on the right
  • Click the Search Icon

Rating

3. Similarly, user can search other properties like Asset ID, Repository Revision Number, Project etc.

Use Of Operators In Query

There are 3 types of operators supported

  • AND -> Use this to search for assets having both the values like

              IPTC_City: Adelaide AND IPTC_Title: Interview

  • OR ->  Use this to search for assets having either of the values like 

              IPTC_City: Adelaide OR IPTC_Title: Sports

  • NOT -> Use this to search for assets not matching the specified values like  

              NOT IPTC_City: Boston  

            It will fetch all assets which don’t have IPTC City as Boston.
