- Quick Search Available above the Navigation Area and described in Quick Search. By default, terms entered are used to search for the names of data elements and folders across all available CLC Locations.
- Local Search Available under the Utilities menu and described in Local Search. All CLC Locations can be searched, or an individual Location can be searched. Local searches can be saved, so that the same search can be run again easily.
The CLC Genomics Workbench automatically maintains an index of data in each CLC Location. These indexes are used for searches.
Problems with search results can reflect a problem with an index. If a search does not return the results you expect, re-building the index may help. Do this by right-clicking on the relevant data location in the Navigation Area and then selecting:
Location | Rebuild Index
Rebuilding the index for locations with a lot of data can take some time.
The index building process can be stopped under the Process Area.
Indexes are updated automatically when data is moved between CLC Locations, but not when data elements are moved within a given CLC Location. When searching based on names, this does not matter. However, for searches based on information in the path, the index may need to be rebuilt before searching.
