The quick find, otherwise known as global search, can be located at the top right of any Squared Up page.

This search allows you to find drilldown pages for any of the following:

  • Objects
  • Groups pages
  • Distributed applications
You cannot search for the following items or use the following methods for searching, with this feature:
  • Alerts or Alert drilldowns
  • Monitors or Rules
  • Using the SCOM ID of an Object / Group / Distributed Application / Monitor / Rule

By default the search will show the top 10 items containing the words listed in the search.


You can use an asterisk (*) as a wildcard. If the wildcard is placed at the start of a search, e.g. *server, the search will look for objects that contain that word and have terms before it, see the image below:

If the wildcard is entered after the search term, it will find all the objects which start with that word and have terms following it:

If you enclose your search term in wildcards it will look for objects which contain that word. Note: This will only return objects that do not begin or end with the search term.
