Product

Select the product ID.

Note: The Find Item dialog is scoped by the current project/stream and therefore the Product selection only affects the results under the following circumstances:

  • If your current view is $GENERIC:$GLOBAL and you use the Product selector, the Find Now tab will list items for the selected Product only.

  • If your current view is a particular project/stream, and items have been imported to that project/stream from another product, the Find Now tab will include those imported items if you select the product they were imported from (because they are still owned by that product).

Project/Stream

Select a project or stream from the list.
