Search

METEOR’s search works in a similar way to other search engines. You can use keywords or terms to pull up related content. The below tips are specific to METEOR and will help you to find what you need.

Try searching using either a keyword, specific term or METEOR ID number.

METEOR ID search

If you’re a returning user and know an item’s METEOR ID, you can enter it in the search box. Clicking the search icon will take you straight to the item’s page.

Autocomplete

METEOR will automatically display suggestions for search terms as you’re typing. This predictive text will show you METEOR entries that exist for the topic you’re searching on. You don’t have to use any of these suggestions, but they may make your searching process faster and easier.

Pressing ‘tab’ will select the top suggestion. Otherwise, selecting from the list of suggestions will put the suggested search term into the search box. You can then click the search icon to find related content. Clicking anywhere on the search results will take you to the item’s page.

Spelling correction

METEOR will show search results with spelling correction. Misspelled terms can still be selected for search where relevant.

Dropdown options

The drop-down menus directly below the search text box allow you to limit the search results to any of the 18 content types in METEOR (see Learn about metadata to view the list), by item creation dates, and item revision dates.

Content types

Content types allow you to limit your search to various metadata building blocks and other topic or help content found in METEOR. See Learn about metadata to view a list of metadata item types that you can search in METEOR. Searching on Topic pages will give results from METEOR’s ‘non-metadata’ pages which explain metadata, how it is managed, how to use METEOR, and how to develop metadata.

Searching on Help will give results from all the pop-up information boxes that are linked to each metadata item. The Help search looks through all text from the METEOR Business Rules, which is accessed through the small ‘i’ icon used throughout the site.

Created date and Revision date

The Created and Revision date dropdown options limit your search to when an item was created or last revised. METEOR will search any time by default, or you can select or specify a custom period.

Custom search syntax

METEOR uses Lucene search syntax. This functionality can be useful to fine-tune your search results even more. Some of the commands include:

  1. Restrict search to the titles of items by using Name: Searchterm. Note that it has to be written exactly as Name, with the capital N. Using name will not work. It doesn’t matter if there’s a space around the colon or not.
  2. Force a second term to be included by using AND.
  3. Widen your search to include another option using the term OR.

For example, if you’re looking for something with the word ‘baby’ in the title you would use Name: baby. METEOR will also give you results for the plural of the search term, so if you search on ‘baby’ you will also get results for ‘babies’. If looking for something with two terms (‘baby’ and ‘admission’) you would use Name: baby AND admission.

Sort by

You can also display your search results with a range of options in the Sort by drop-down menu on the right. You can sort on Relevance, Most/Least Recently Created, Most/Least Recently Updated, and Alphabetically (A–Z and Z–A).

Clear

The Clear button resets the Search page.

Filtering search results

You can fine-tune your search results using the filters that appear in the left-hand menu after searching any term. These filters are dynamic and will only display options specific to your search term, for example, only registration authorities relating to your search term will be displayed. You can use multiple filters at once.

Some of the filters change depending on your role within METEOR. If you are using METEOR without an account, you can search on metadata item type, public registration statuses, METEOR ID, and registration authority. You are also able to compare two items.

If you are using METEOR without an account, you will not be able to save bookmarks for items you’re interested in. There are also some non-public registration statuses that you won’t be able to see.

If you wish to save bookmarks, you can sign up for a free METEOR account easily, just follow the Sign up now prompts after clicking on the Sign In button. If you have an account, you will also be able to subscribe to notifications about changes to specific items in METEOR.

If you are logged in to METEOR as a metadata developer, or any other official role, there are some additional search options. You will be able to restrict your search to the full range of registration status options, including non-public statuses. You will also be able to save bookmarks and subscribe to notifications about changes to items.

Each search result has a small ‘hamburger’ icon on the right . This gives you download links for the metadata item as a PDF or a Word document.
