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 lists 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 includes 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.


Select an item type.

You can use wildcards:

  • Use an underscore (_) to match exactly one character. For example, d_g matches dog or dig.

  • Use a percent sign (%) to match any number of characters. For example, d%g matches dog or drag or dreaming.
