Searching DITA Content

Users can employ the Ingeniux CMS Browser tab Search tool to search for CMS assets in the Oxygen Desktop Plugin and search for CMS assets.

Keep in mind that the Oxygen Desktop Plugin also provides the search functionality in file browser dialogs (e.g., inserting CMS images, DITA links, etc.).

Version Notes: CMS 10.6
When searching for assets, CMS 10.0–10.5 only indexes asset item titles. After asset text search configuration in CMS 10.6, users can run full text searches on text-based assets in the CMS and in the Oxygen Desktop Plugin. Both interfaces indicate search rankings for returned results. See CMS 10.6 Asset Text Searches for details.
To search for assets via the Oxygen Desktop Plugin:
  1. Open the Oxygen XML Editor application.
  2. Optional: Select a folder in the Ingeniux CMS Browser tab.

    This selection narrows the search scope to folders and assets contained within the chosen folder. If you don't select a folder, the system searches all content within the DITA root folder.

    Select Parent Folder for Search Query

  3. Enter a search term in the Ingeniux CMS Browser tab search field, and se;ect Search.
    The Ingeniux CMS Search Result tab displays the Parent Folder (i.e., the folder you selected for the search scope), the Total Results, and a results list of returned assets. Search results display the ID of each returned asset item. You can also search for individual asset items by entering their ID in the Search field.
    Additional Information
    The system paginates entries in the Search Result tab. For example, let's say the maximum pagination number is 40. The system will display the first 40 search results in the list. If the search query returns more than 40 results, then users can click More... to load more result entries.

    CMS system administrators configure this option (i.e., the treeChildrenPageSize key) in the Oxygen Web Service Web.config file. See Installing CMS 10.6 Oxygen Web Service or Installing CMS 10.3–10.5 Oxygen Web Service for details.
