Searching in Message Panel

About this task

The Message Search page, shown in the following figure, lets you enter search parameters, such as start and end times, and to limit the search to alerts only or messages only. It further refines the search by topic and a text mask.


  1. Enter a start time and end time (required).
    If your start date and end date are identical, you must enter a timestamp with the date.
  2. Select All/ Alerts/Messages.
  3. Select a Topic (optional).
  4. Enter a text mask in the Message Contains field. (Optional).
    If you do not specify a text mask, all items for the associated alert or message are returned. Use a text substring for a mask. The Message Contains field does not accept wildcard characters.
  5. Select Search.
    The search results are displayed in the Search Results panel.
