Searching within the SharePoint Hierarchy

Use the Search Hierarchy feature to locate sites within the ControlPoint SharePoint Hierarchy.  

This feature is a useful alternative to the SharePoint Hierarchy for navigating through a large farm.  In a multi-farm environment, you can only search the home farm.

NOTE:  By default, the Search Hierarchy feature uses real-time data.  However, to enable faster searches in large environments, ControlPoint Application Administrators can change the default value of the ControlPoint Configuration Setting.  If cache data is used, however, results will not return results for which your only permissions are Full Control in the Web Application Policy.

To perform a hierarchy search:

1From the left navigation panel, choose Search.

Search Hierarchy

2Enter a full or partial Name and/or URL.

Navigational Search criteria

3Click the magnifying glass icon ().

All of the sites and subsites that meet all of your search criteria display—along with associated lists, users and groups—within the appropriate hierarchical context,  

You can navigate through search results and access SharePoint pages and ControlPoint actions and analyses via the right-click menu.

Managing SharePoint Objects

From the SharePoint Hierarchy panel, you can access a variety of SharePoint administration pages and ControlPoint value-added actions for managing SharePoint objects.

Accessing SharePoint Pages

From the SharePoint Hierarchy panel, you can

·access the relevant SharePoint administration page for managing a SharePoint object, and

·open a SharePoint site or list.

One of the advantages of using ControlPoint over SharePoint to access these pages is that you can link directly to the appropriate page, within the relevant context, and without having to enter a url.  In a multi-farm environment, you can access SharePoint pages for either the home farm or a remote farm.

Consult your SharePoint documentation for information on using SharePoint administration features to manage SharePoint objects.


Accessing SharePoint Site Collection Administration Pages

From a site collection's right click menu, you can access a variety of SharePoint pages for managing the site collection, including

·Site Settings (for the root site)

Site Settings ROOT SITE

·Configuration pages for operations that include setting site properties such as quotas and administrators

Site Collection Configuration options

·Pages for managing a site collection's Content, including Content and Structure and site creation and site collection deletion.
