Use type-ahead search

Type-ahead search allows you to quickly filter elements.

You can use type-ahead search in most views in which element lists, tables, or trees are displayed. You can also use type-ahead search in rule cells in policies.

  For more details about the product and how to configure features, click Help or press F1.


  1. Activate type-ahead search in one of the following ways:
    • Select an element in a list, table, or tree.
    • Click the small Search icon in any view that includes the icon.
    • In a policy editing view, click a rule cell in which elements can be used.
  2. Type the information that you want to search for (for example, an element name, an IP address, a comment, or a TCP/UDP port number).


The Management Client filters the display to only show the elements that include what you typed.
Note: In policy editing views, when you have a Category Filter activated, only search results that match the Category Filter are displayed.
