Using global search in Dataiku DSS¶
The Global Search bar simplifies search and navigation in Dataiku DSS. A single search input at the top right of every screen enables discovery of DSS items like datasets and recipes, administrative settings, and help topics.
Start typing your search term, and Dataiku DSS begins searching for matches across several sources, including:
The reference documentation
The history of recently accessed items
An index of screens and settings
Filtering a Global Search¶
You can filter global search results by a specific project, tag, type of Dataiku DSS item, or even user. Alternatively, use the tabs Navigation for relevant administrative settings or Help topics for reference documentation, tutorials and other resources. Clicking on a result takes you directly to it.
Searching External Connections¶
While the global search bar integrates many sources and is the simplest option for most queries, the Catalog still has an important role to play for certain kinds of queries, especially for exploring external connections.
In addition to retrieving Dataiku DSS items, the Catalog has the ability to search for tables in external connections.
