Find Objects

A Find object definition, which is set up in Siebel Tools, specifies what Find objects and fields will be available when a user invokes a Find operation.

Each item in the Search Center's Find list identifies a business component whose records can be searched for matching values that have been entered in the Keywords text box. For instance, if a user searches one term against the Accounts field, the search engine will take the entry, add an asterisk character (*) at the end of the term, and send that information to the query engine. Find queries are case sensitive by default, but this setting may be changed. If multiple fields are entered, the entries will be connected with a Boolean AND.

NOTE:  You can enter the operator = before a query term and the engine will look for an exact match instead of doing a Starts with (which appends a wildcard at the end of the query).
