FAIR Search

FAIR search allows users to search and filter on all datasets they have visibility of.

Basic Search

By default all available datasets are displayed, and users can search the FAIR catalogue using the free type search box, the filters at the top of the page, or the facets on the left hand side.

Both the filters and facets are configurable, and can be updated by administrative users. Details on how to do this can be found here.

Users can also save and share their searches.

Sharing searches

The copy button on the right of the search box allows users to copy the search URL, which can then be shared with other users.

When a search is shared like this with another user it will only return results that they have permission to view.

Saving searches

To save a search user should use the Save option at the top of the search tab.
