Search tips

Here's an overview of basic tips and useful tricks to use when searching the SecureAuth Docs website:

  • Product release: Select a product release before typing a search term. You'll get results for the specified release only. Don't see expected results? The feature might be available in a different release. Example: FIDO2 WebAuthn is supported in the Identity Platform release 20.06, but not in release 19.07.

  • Docs home page: When you first start the Docs home page it shows the latest product release. To see info for a different release, set the picker to select the release you want. Your document search results will filter the topics for the selected release only.

  • Quickly switch between releases: Want to see the same topic but in a different release? Change the release number in the address bar.

    Example: You’re looking at https://docs.secureauth.com/2006/en/add-sql-server-data-store.html but realize you want to look at the 19.07 version.

    Change “2006” to “1907” in the address bar and reload the page. Remember not to add a period (2006, not 20.06).

  • Search in results:

    Use CTRL-F to search a long list of results for the info you want.

  • Auto fill: Type a partial word and the results will show the closest match. Results too broad? Add another letter to hone the results.

  • Fuzzy search: We use fuzzy search. This means if you enter a typo, you'll still see results that match. Example: "athn" yields results for webauthn. Slim down the search more by not adding words like a, and, the, of, etc.

  • Contextual results: Search results are returned in context under main section headings, such as Getting Started and API Documents. The context can help you focus on the kind of info you need.

  • Breadcrumb: In any topic, look at the breadcrumb at the top of the page to view the product release.
