Use search facets to add or modify search predicates to the Search panel in Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) Assets - Brand Portal. Adding search predicates to the Search panel lets you customize your search based on specific needs, which makes the search functionality versatile.

You can add multiple predicates to the Search panel. For example, add the Fulltext predicate for full-text searches. Use the Property predicate to search for assets that match a single property that you specify in this predicate. Use the Options predicate to search assests that match one or more values that you specify for a particular property. Add the Date Range property to search assets created within a specified date range.

Note:

See also the Search facets video.

  1. From the rail, click ToolsSearch Facets.

  2. Select the mediaportal form and then click the Edit search facets icon.
