About Configuration and Administration of Siebel Search
You configure and administer Siebel Search using Siebel Tools, and through administration screens in your Siebel application. You configure Find objects solely using Siebel Tools. There are no administration screens for Find. For a discussion of the differences between Search and Find, see The Differences Between Find and Search Operations.
Siebel Search uses a technology called full-text search where a search index is created that transforms the content of documents or database fields into a form that is very efficient for searching. At a high level, Siebel Tools configuration defines what these indices should be, and the task of administration creates the indices.
