    Search in LiveCycle

    Gary.Fleming

      I'm trying to find information on search within LiveCycle Workspace and wonder if anyone can help. I want users to be able to search through the data for particular items.

       

      Imagine a workflow process which captures mortage applications (one of the standard sample apps), including first name, last name, amount etc. Now, for whatever reason, the process hasn't finished yet. The person who the mortgage is for phones up to ask the status of their application. I'd like the workspace user to be able to search on the person's name, for example. They could then see the status of the application. I can't seem to see user-level functionality like this.

       

      I've seen two other pieces of functionality that are similar but I'll say why I don't think they're right (I could well be wrong):

       

      1) Search Templates - they are basically views onto the existing data, and don't let the user search for a specific view. As far as I can see, I can't set-up a template that would let the end-user input the search-template criteria at run-time; everything needs to be pre-configured. Again, I may have missed something here.

      2) Admin UI - has various pieces of search functionality, but we absolutely wouldn't want end-users having access to the admin UI

       

       

      I'm not 100% sure I'm being clear here, but proper end-user level search is what I'm looking for. Does anyone have useful information or suggestions?

       

      Thanks.
