Searching Just Got a Whole Lot Easier

I’m excited to share a new feature that was added in Decision Modeler 2.3. It’s one of those features that I use so frequently now that I wonder how I ever got along without it. There is a new search field on the Command Bar that lets you quickly locate one or more decision entities that match a simple text query. When a string is entered, the search returns a list of any decision entities that contain the string in its name or in the content.


This video shows the new search field.


Here’s just one example of why I especially like this feature. Last week I was finalizing work on a decision service when the individual who had requested the decision service informed me that some of the property names in the object model needed to be changed. Rather than spending my time trying to get out of making the changes, I decided to give the new search field a try. Within minutes, I knew exactly where the properties
were being used and how long it would take to make the requested changes. Within a half hour, I had updated the object model, modified the logic, and had a clean run for my test cases in Decision Testing.


Try it out, and and explore all the other new features with the latest trial version of Decision Modeler.
