Filter and Group Search Results

You can apply filters to a selected search category to further refine the search. The filters that are available are appropriate to the type of resource you are searching for.

For example, when you search for servers, you can filter the results by server name, server IP address, its resource pool, and the VMs on it. When you search for virtual disks, you can filter the results using criteria such as whether they are shared or the storage repository they are on.
