Search for Items Efficiently with Syntax

Preston Mitchell | April 4, 2013

Beyond the basic keyword search, Jama uses industry-standard syntax for complex searching. This video will teach you some of the syntax available such as wildcards, phrases, AND/OR conditions, and field-based searching.  This brief video will help you find your items quickly and efficiently.

Some highlights:

  • One of the most widely used items in search is the wildcard. You can use an asterisk or a question mark to perform wildcard searches.
  • You can also search for phrases.
  • And / Or syntax also works in Jama.
  • You can also search by fields.

I hope this tip helps you search for items more efficiently in Jama. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us directly. Either post a comment below or send a request to support@jamasoftware.com.  Thanks!
