Filtering search results

Use multiple parallel filters to narrow down your search results and quickly find what you’re looking for.

You can filter both full-text Find bar search results across apps and in-app search results in the Pages and Assets apps.

The total number of search results is displayed at the bottom of the page so you can see how effective your search is and decide if you want to filter results further.
  • Find bar filters

  • Assets app filters

  • Pages app filters

The following default search result filters are available for Find bar:

  • Type - All types of content configured as searchable. By default, all content apps.

  • Tags - All the tags applied to your content in Magnolia.

  • Last editor

  • Last edited date

If you start searching when you have an app open, Magnolia automatically filters results based on the current app so you get relevant results straight away.

The following default search result filters are available in the Assets app:

  • Asset type

  • Author

  • Size

  • Status

  • Tag

The following default search result filters are available in the Pages app:

  • Author

  • Status

  • Tag

  • Template

The filters available and their options can be configured by your Magnolia administrator. Filters for external data sources can also be configured.
