Search and filter data

Instructor info

The data filter can be used to search and filter the data in the data tables based on various conditions.

On the background, the SQL technology is used to process the filtering and searching.

Search your data using filter

You can search any phrase or value available in any searchable columns, even if the column is currently hidden from view.

Value in search condition matches exact and similar values:
For example: Searching for “abc”: - matches “abc”, “Abc”, “abcdef” and “Abcdedf”

Search phrase is added as a filter condition “Contains”

Some columns might be non-searchable. For details contact your Edjet LMS Administrator.

To search a data:

  1. Sign in to Edjet LMS admin.
  2. Navigate to any page with data table and filter.
  3. Enter keyword into input Search above the data grid.
  4. Click OK.

Add or edit filter conditions

The query is composed from conditions, logical operators and condition groups. You can see the current query if you expand the filter panel.


Filter condition is composed from value of the the item property (stored and displayed in the data table column) and the comparison operator.

Available comparison operators:

  • Equal [=]
  • Not equal [≠]
  • Greater than [>]
  • Smaller than [<]

Value matches exact values only and is case sensitive.

Example - condition value "abc":

  • matches "abc"
  • but doesn't match "Abc", "abcdef" and "Abcdedf".

Logical operators

A logical operator allows you to test for the truth of a condition. They return a true or false.

  • AND - True if all the conditions separated by AND is true
  • OR - True if any of the conditions separated by OR is true

Condition groups

You can combine multiple filter conditions and group them as you need, allowing you to combine different logical operators.

Groups can be added and removed. There is always a basic condition group that cannot be removed.

Steps to add or edit filter:

  1. In the toolbar click filter_list Filter.
  2. Click drop down Choose and select item property (column).
  3. If available, click the comparison operator dropdown and choose the option.
  4. If available, enter the condition value.
    You can use the item lookup, date time picker or different tool available next to input.
  5. To add another condition, click add Add above the condition group.
    The condition will be added into the next nearest condition group.
  6. To add a condition group, click add Group above the condition group and set logical operator.
    The group will be added after the last condition in current group.
  7. To remove the condition or group click icon remove cancel in a row.
  8. In the toolbar click save Save and close.
    To apply the filter without closing the dialog, click Save.

Filter limitations

  • Data from different columns cannot be searched within one condition.
    For example: if there are columns Name and Surname, you cannot search “name surname”, but create a query “name” AND “surname” composed from two conditions.
  • If there are folders on a page, filter always apply only to current folder – to filter across all tests disable the folders using link Turn off, if available.
  • Basic group can only be set to AND logical operator. Add a custom group to use other logical operators.
