Flow Node Search¶
With the Node Search field, one can carry out a case-insensitive search through the flow nodes. Please take a look here for a list of what can be searched within a flow.
In order to search the flow nodes:
- Click the Search Icon located among the other tools in the bottom left corner of the Chart Editor.
- An input filed with a placeholder Search Nodes opens up, where you can enter the search text.
- Alternatively, you can also open the search nodes input field by using Ctrl + Alt + F or Command + Option + F hotkeys.
Node and Node Editor highlighting¶
Once the search text is entered, all the Nodes that contain the search text will be highlighted in yellow and the page will automatically be scrolled to the first matching Node. Using the up and down arrows within the search field, one can scroll to the previous and next matching Nodes, respectively. In addition, the total number of Nodes that contain the search text will also be displayed within the search field. If you'd like to reset and clear the search text, click the Clear Input button in the search field.
Tip: Toggle Search Icon
In order to close the Node Search input field without resetting the search text, click on the Search Icon in the chart editor toolbar again. Doing this toggles the Node highlighting.
Further, when a highlighted Node is opened, the field that has the match will have its label highlighted.
Section Label and Channel Tab Highlighting
When the field that has the match is inside a collapsable section, the label of the section will also be highlighted. Similarly, when the field that has a match is inside a Channel tab form of a node, the Channel tab icon will have its border highlighted (See Example 5 in Examples section).
You can search for the following within the flow nodes:
Example 1: Searching for all nodes of type 'Say' in the flow
Example 2: Code Node Editor after searching for the term 'Welcome'
Example 3: Alexa Channel after searching for the term 'Welcome'
Example 4: Go To Node Editor after searching for the term 'Welcome'
Example 5: Say Node Editor Channel tabs with matching fields in 'Default' and 'Google Actions' form, with 'Alexa' as the selected tab
Search nodes with Analytics Step¶
For finding nodes that have Analytics Step, you can search for the specific keyword "has:analyticsStep" with the Node Search field.
It highlights all the nodes where Analytics Step field is not empty or null.
