Example: Retrieve all device records where the logical name begins with the character A.

  1. Click Tailoring > Database Manager.

  3. On the Asset Information form, open the More Actions menu.
  4. Select Expert Search.
  5. In the Query field, type“A”, and then click Search.
  6. Click any record in the list of returned records to view the details.

Note: A device is also referred to as an Asset or Configuration Item (CI).
