Filter Data Using Hub Central

Hub Central provides three ways of filtering the records in the list:

  • By entity type.
  • By searching for text.
  • By facet.

The resulting list will contain only the records that match all the filters you set.

Filter settings can be saved as a query that you can rerun at a later time. See Manage Queries.

Note: If you do not have the required privileges to view, filter, or export a specific record, you will not be able to perform that action on that record. For example, if you are permitted to view the record but not export it, it is included in the displayed record list but it is excluded from the exported list.
Note: You can filter records by concepts. See About Concepts to learn more.

    • To include only the records of a specific base entity, select the base entity from the dropdown.
    • To include only records that contain a specific text in its Wildcard Search properties, enter the text in the search box and click Search. See Understanding and Using Wildcard Searches.
    • To include records with specific property values, choose the facets to narrow your search in the facet panel.

      The facets shown in the facet panel vary, depending on the selected base entity.

      • If All Entities (default) is selected, the facet panel displays only HUB PROPERTIES, which are metadata properties common to all base entities, such as the flow name, the step name, the collection tags, and the creation date and time of the records to select.
      • If a single base entity is selected, the facet panel also displays BASE ENTITIES, which are the entities whose data you want to explore. You can choose one or more base entities. To narrow your search, click a base entity to view facets for the entity; the facets that are shown were marked as Facet in the model screen. See Manage Entity Properties Using Hub Central.
