The Search Window

UML Patterns

Enterprise Architect has an effective and easy to use search facility that helps you to find elements in a model, based on criteria such as name, the date of creation or modification, type, textual notes and more. There are a number of built-in searches, but even a novice user can easily extend the functionality by defining useful and parameterized searches that can be stored and re-run. When run, the searches return a set of elements that can be located within the hierarchy of the repository or in any diagrams in which they appear; they can even be included in reports. This convenient feature ensures that, regardless of the structure of the model or how large the repository is, you will always be able to locate the information you are looking for.
