Search | HCL Digital Experience

The generic search syntax is documented in Search. The Portlet bean supports the following keywords for node types in searches. Alternative, shorter keywords are documented in the bean help.

  • webmodule, webmodules, module, modules, wm, w, m
  • application, applications, app, apps, a
  • portlet, portlets, p
  • concrete (portlet or application)
  • abstract (web module)
  • all or any

In addition to the default search criteria, the Portlet bean supports two criteria that match on the name of the objects. The name is similar to a common name, except that there are no restrictions on the character set. The name is a real attribute of the repository objects, not a synthesized one like the common name.

Table 1. Descriptions of the 2 search criteria that match on the name of the objects
Attribute Description
namehas The value is a string. The search is for objects with the string as a substring in their name. Comparison is not case-sensitive.
nameis The value is a string. The search is for objects with the string as their name. Comparison is case-sensitive.

#          will fail if none or several are found
Portlet.find("portlet", "nameis", "NewsPortlet", "select")
