You can search for some or all repositories residing on the current repository server. Use the Show All option to return a view of all available repositories. Use the Filtered Search option to narrow your search using one or more conditions. For each condition, optionally add one or more sub-groups. Adding a sub-group refines the search by categorizing the results. For example, you can build the following condition and sub-group to find all repositories that have the term Credit Card in the name created by the user dsmith: "Repository Name contains Credit Card" and "Created By equals dsmith".

Note: When creating a filtered search, click Hide to remove the filter panel and see only the summary of your filter criteria. Click Show to display the filter panel.
