Working with saved queries


The HCP Search Console lets you save the queries you create so you can run them again at any time. Saving a query saves the criteria only, not the search results. Each time you run a saved query, you get a new set of returned objects.

You can publish a feed for a saved query. The feed makes regularly updated query results available to users of the web site where it’s published.

This chapter provides instructions for saving queries and then viewing, running, editing, deleting, and publishing feeds for them.

Saving a query


You can save all three types of queries: simple, structured, and advanced. Queries you save while one search facility is active are not available while another facility is active.

To save a query:

1.On the Simple Search, Structured Search, or Advanced Search page, specify the query criteria.

2.Click on Search.

3.Optionally, select filters to apply to the query results. The filters you apply to the search results are saved along with the query.

For information on filters, see Filtering search results.

4.In the save as field, type a name for the query. Query names must be from one through 500 characters long and cannot contain single quotation marks ('), double quotation marks ("), or backslashes (\).

Certain strings that are used internally by HCP are reserved and cannot be used as names as saved queries.

Note: If a query doesn’t return any objects, a field labeled Save this query as appears below the search criteria on the Search Results page.

5.Click on Save.

Viewing saved queries


When you save a query, the Search Console lists it on the Saved Queries page. From this page, you can run, edit, or delete the query, as well as publish it as a feed.

Note: When you run a saved query, the save as field on the Search Results page shows the name of that query. If you edit the query and then click on Save without changing the query name, the modified query overwrites the previous version.
