Semantic search is based on a variety of information, such as keywords, concept and context of terms, synonyms of a term, word variations or intent of a searcher's query.
You can use the following keywords:
Keyword type Description
Object types term, dataset, attribute, entity, table, column, file, field, database, model, data model, and report

You can use these keywords in singular or plural.

Model categories glossary, glossaries, database, databases, db, modeling, data modeling, bi, reporting, tableau, bo, cognos, and obi

These keywords do not need to be quoted when space is used.

You can also use these keywords with additional qualifier keywords, as follows:
  • customer table returns all database tables having customer in the name.
  • datasets with email: returns all tables/files with a column/field having email in the name.

You can also use the semantic search BNF syntax, for example:

<semantic search query> = <type> | <children> | <label> | <steward> | <category>

Query element Description
<type> <name> <types>
<children> <types> with <name>
<label> <types> with <name> label
<steward> <types> | <name> ’s terms
<category> <name> in <categories>
<name> <alphanumeric>+ | <character>+
<types> datasets | dataset | entities | entity | tables | table | files | file | attributes | attribute | columns | column | fields | field | reports | report | terms | term | databases | database | data models | data model | models | model
<categories> glossary | glossaries | database | databases | db | modeling | data modeling | bi | reporting | tableau | bo | cognos | obi
