Sitecore Experience Platform

Perform an operation on search results

Abstract

When you run a search, you can perform a number of operations on all the search result items directly from the search.

Search operations is a powerful feature that lets you run a number of operations on all the items in the search results. For example, you can use the search operation feature to add a tag or apply the same security rules to multiple items at the same time.

Note

The operations in the following screenshot are the default search operations in Sitecore, but your administrator can create and add customized search operations.

To apply a search operation on all the items in the search results:

  1. In your list of search results, click the down arrow to the left of the Search field.

  2. Expand Search Operations and select the search operation that you want to apply to all the items in the search result.
