Find items quickly in App Studio (8.5)

Updated on December 2, 2021

In App Studio you can now more quickly and conveniently find items that model your business processes:

  • Case types that are visual templates of your business processes.
  • Channels that users access to interact with your application.
  • Data objects that represent information necessary to resolve your business processes.

Instead of manually locating an item, to save time you can simply use the Search option in the navigation pane. For example, in a business process of reviewing job applications, you can use Search to locate a Work experience data object, as in the following example:

When you open the Search pane, you view a list of all of the case types, channels, and data objects in your application, so that you can quickly gain a holistic view of the items in your application. To help you locate the information that you need even faster, Search groups the items and the search results.

For a consistent search experience throughout App Studio, now you can also search for case types and personas that represent groups of users directly on their respective landing pages. By using the landing pages Search, you instantly receive more information about the item that you are looking for. For example, when you search for an HR worker persona, you can check which case types and channels are associated with the HR worker persona, so that you can ensure that HR workers can access parts of your application that are relevant to them.

The following figure shows the Personas landing page with the new Search option:
