AIM provides two ways to search across your portfolio of project or component models.
- Text search – where AIM looks for an exact match on the text you enter and shows elements that match. You can open the search results from there to take a closer look.
- Semantic search – where AIM finds views that match the meaning of your search input. For example, if you type “financials” into the semantic search field, then AIM might find views that have the words “invoice”, “accounts receivable”, “payment”, or other words that are related to the word “financials”.
To perform a semantic search, go into Project Explorer or Component Explorer, click the Semantic Search tab, and enter a search value. Hit Enter or click Search.
Views that match the semantics of your search value are displayed when you click Search.
