Searching for Players

QL's Content Manager features a powerful search engine and users can search for players based on multiple criteria.

  • A complete or partial player name.
  • A meta tag assigned to a player.
  • A player's status.
  • Etc.

In order to perform a player search, you must have created a query. Once your query has been created, it is saved so you can re-use it as many times as you wish.

The more players you have deployed, the more useful search queries will be.

Queries can be created, edited and deleted as needed.

Creating a New Query

Click the options button (3-dots) located at the top of the PLAYERS window.

To add a new query to the list, click Create query.  A new window will appear.

Enter a descriptive name for the new query.  In this example, we are building a query that filters the results so only players with a red status will appear in the Monitoring report.

Query Filters

  1. Select a filter to search on. 
    Available options are:
    1. Name
    2. Serial Number
    3. Tag
    4. Period
    6. Status
    7. Display
    8. Alert
    9. Version
    10. Technical Profile
  2. Select an operator. The list of available operators will change depending on the criteria you chose. 
    For example, choosing the "Status" filter will let you select between "Equal" and "Not Equal".
  3. Select a criteria. The list will change depending on the criteria you chose. 
    For example, choosing the "Status" filter will let you choose between the following options: Running, Green, Yellow, or Red.
  4. To create complex filters, use the "and/or" logical operators to link each expression. 
    For example, you can create a filter that will return only the players that are "Running" (meaning they have a Green or Yellow status) and that are still using an older version of the QL software.

You can delete any filter by clicking the corresponding "X" in the right column.

When you are done, click OK to save your new query.

The new query will now appear when you click on the pull-down field.

Result… You only see players with a red status.  Other selected players have been removed from the results.

To disable the query and return to the default view, select “None” from the pull-down menu.
