Searching and Filtering
Many pages have filtering options and a search bar to narrow down which events or resources are displayed.
When filters are manually chosen, search terms are automatically added to the search bar in a
key:value format. You may add “free” search terms or valid key-value pairs to the search bar, including timestamps in the format
yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm or
Free search terms are used in search as follows:
- For workloads, free search terms are searched for as substrings within the workload “location”. For example, if you have a workload with a location aks-prod / bcloud-prod / bcloud, searching for bcloud-prod would return that workload, along with any others in the bcloud-prod namespace.
- For events, free search terms are searched for as substrings within the full name of the object that the event pertains to, which is displayed on the left side of an event, and the event description displayed on the right side of an event. For code rollout events, this includes version number.
- Note: when the “show event details” toggle is enabled, then the free search terms will also be searched against the event details.
All search terms are implicitly ANDed together, except when there are multiple
key:value terms where the key is the same, in which case those are implicitly OR’d together. See the examples below. Search currently does not support explicit “AND” or “OR” logical expressions.
cluster:prod cluster:stagingwill return the list of workloads that are running in either the “prod” cluster or the “staging” cluster.
namespace:linkerd cluster:prodwill return the list of workloads running in the prod cluster and are in the Linkerd namespace.
namespace:linkerd cluster:prod cluster:stagingwill return the list of workloads that are in the Linkerd namespace and run either in the “prod” cluster or the “staging” cluster.
type:alert type:rolloutwill return a list of both alerts and rollout events
type:rollout env:prodwill return a list of rollout events that also have the tag env:prod
type:rollout env:staging env:prodwill return a list of events that are rollout events and also have the tag env:prod or the tag env:staging
