Searching the Help
To search for information in the Help, type a word or phrase in the Search box. When you enter a group of words, OR is inferred. You can use Boolean operators to refine your search.
Results returned are case insensitive. However, results ranking takes case into account and assigns higher scores to case matches. Therefore, a search for "cats" followed by a search for "Cats" would return the same number of Help topics, but the order in which the topics are listed would be different.
|A single word||
||Topics that contain the word "cat". You will also find its grammatical variations, such as "cats".|
You can specify that the search results contain a specific phrase.
Topics that contain the literal phrase "cat food" and all its grammatical variations.
Without the quotation marks, the query is equivalent to specifying an OR operator, which finds topics with one of the individual words instead of the phrase.
Two or more words in the same topic
|Either word in a topic||
|Topics that do not contain a specific word or phrase||
|Topics that contain one string and do not contain another||
|A combination of search types||

By default, Service Manager provides the following scheduled processes:
|Scheduler Name||Runs as Process Name or Names||Description|

If using the SM applications earlier than version 9.32, this process automatically logs off users who are inactive for a period of time.
If using the SM applications version 9.32 or later, this process is obsolete. A new inactivity timer mechanism is used, which no longer requires this process. Note that this new mechanism requires your SM server, applications, and web client to upgrade to version 9.32 or later. As long as your applications is earlier than version 9.32, the old mechanism is used.
