ProcedureTo Use the Pin Feature

The Pin feature of the user interface allows you to hold one or more objects in the Registry Objects area while you search for other objects. You can then create a relationship between two objects. See Creating Relationships Between Objects for details on how to perform this task.

  1. Click Search and execute a query.

  2. In the Registry Objects area, select the Pin checkbox for the object or objects that you want to hold there.

  3. Execute another query.

    The pinned object(s) and the search results for the second query all appear in the Registry Objects area.

Next Steps

When you have finished using a pinned object, deselect the Pin checkbox for the object. When you execute another query, the object will not appear in the Registry Objects area.
