A series of query steps that leads to a set of hitswhen searching for specifications.


You can create specification searches that you require frequently and that are as complex as you like as queries and execute them as required.

With the help of the drilldown reporting job function, you can execute a system query in the background and automatically save the set of hits that results.


A query consists of one or more query steps.

The query overview shows you the structure of a query with all the query steps it contains. You can edit the query in the query overview.

A query can contain copies of other queries or references to other queries. In both cases, the query steps in all the queries contained in a query are executed when a query itself is executed.


Queries are grouped together in groups and a distinction is made between public and private groups. The group overview shows you the groups and the queries they contain.
