Like the map, much of the data in Auvik can be filtered to more quickly find the things you’re looking for. You can use filters on tables, as well as on settings that ask you to specify particular entities.
You filter by adding properties. A property can be entered with a full name (e.g., device type:) or, in some instances, the initials (e.g., dt:).
Auvik automatically assumes an AND operator between different properties and an OR operator between like properties. NOT: and ANY: are additional operators you can use. The operator must be entered with a colon after the word.
As you would expect, the NOT: operator removes items from a search. For example, a search for "vendor: Cisco" with a second parameter of "device: not: CISCO_2801" would find all Cisco devices except the one named CISCO_2801.
When entering the NOT: operator, put it first in the search string, like this: not: device: CISCO_2801
Auvik then automatically updates the search query to “device: not:CISCO_2801”.
An ANY: operator can be used to search for a keyword across all fields. When entering the ANY: operator, put it first in the search string, like this: any:network. Auvik then automatically updates the search query to “Any Field: network”.
The properties available on a filter vary depending on the type of data being filtered. Either clicking into the search field or typing ? always shows you the specific properties available on a particular filter.
