51 Managing Operational Settings Using Smart Search

This chapter describes how to use Smart Search in Oracle Service Bus. Smart Search lets you locate and manage resources such as proxy services, business services, alert rules for Service Level Agreements (SLA) violations, and alert destinations.

You can use Smart Search to find resources based on various criteria regardless of your role in Oracle Service Bus. For more information about tasks, which can be performed by each role Oracle Service Bus, see Chapter 45, "Roles in Oracle Service Bus."

You can also use results of a search to change the operational settings at the service level. For effectively enabling or disabling any operational setting, you must enable or disable the setting both at the global level and the service level. For more information, see Section 46.7.1, "How to Configure the Operational Settings for a Service."

You can access Smart Search from the Configuration module on the Operations navigator bar (see Figure 51-1).

Figure 51-1 Accessing Smart Search

Description of Figure 51-1 follows
Description of "Figure 51-1 Accessing Smart Search"

There are the two levels of smart search available in Oracle Service Bus–basic search and advanced search. Using basic search you can search using the following basic criteria–Type, Name, and Path. Using advanced search, you can use additional filters to customize your search for each type. The following sections describe:

51.1 Using Basic Search

Basic Search helps you to search for resources using basic criteria such as resource type or the name of a resource. Table 51-1 describes the basic criteria you can use with the search functionality.

Table 51-1 Criteria for Basic Search

Criteria Usage

Type

This search criterion is mandatory. Use the Type field to specify the type of resource. The field has the following options:

  • All Services: Choose this type when you search for both proxy services and business services.

  • Proxy Services: Choose this type when you search for proxy services only.

  • Business Services: Choose this type when you search for business services only.

  • Alert Destinations: Choose this type when you search for alert destinations.

  • SLA Alert Rules: Choose this type when you search for SLA alert rules.

Note: To view all the resources of a given type, choose the resource type in the Type field and click View All.

Name

Optional. Enter the name of specific resource you want to find.

Path

Optional. Enter a path in the Path field to specify a location (path) of the resource.


You can use any one or a combination of these criteria.

51.2 Using Advanced Search

Use the advanced search if you want to configure your search with additional criteria. To use these filters, click Open Advanced Search Filters icon.The following sections describe the usage of advanced search filters in smart search functionality to manage operational settings.

51.3 Managing Operational Settings for All Services

You can search for proxy services and business services in the Oracle Service Bus Administration Console using filters in Smart Search. This section describes finding, viewing, and editing proxy services and business services.
