Cannot search for global configurations by attribute value

Problem: In Quick Search (near the upper right of the page, below the gear icon) and the Welcome page search, you want to do a full text search and use attribute values that are set on global configurations, but there is no way to specify the attribute values.

Solution: Search is limited to the name (title) and tags fields only. Use tags to search for global configurations and components, and to filter when you add a global configuration.

GCM attribute values are published to the Lifecycle Query Engine (LQE) index. Tools that use this index might be able to search global configurations by custom attribute values. For example, the Report Builder can run reports that query on global configuration attribute values. See Reporting on data in configurations with Report Builder. Alternatively, the LQE query interface offers a Full Text Search field, which administrators can use to return matching RDF triples.
