search : Search object.

The search object is used to perform global searches for multiple object types in the database. This object contains only search parameters and returns objects that match the search criteria. The returned objects are base objects for the respective object types.

Search is the only allowed operation for search objects.

NOTE: Only one of the following can be used each time: ‘address’, ‘mac_address’, ‘duid’ or ‘fqdn’.

Object Reference

search objects are search only and will not be returned. They can not be referenced.

Restrictions

The object does not support the following operations:

  • Create (insert)
  • Delete
  • Modify (update)
  • Permissions
  • Global search (searches via the search object)
  • Scheduling
  • CSV export

The object cannot be managed on Cloud Platform members.
