Search

Multiple search conditions can be added. Search settings will vary depending on what object type you are searching for. The options are listed as follows:


Case

To search by case, select either ID, Number, Reporter ID, Status, or a custom case field from the first drop-down menu. Note: Custom case fields will not appear in the Search menu unless the checkbox Searchable has been selected. For more information, see Custom Fields.

For any of these options, you may then select Equal, Not equal, Empty, or Not empty from the second drop-down menu. If you select Equal or Not equal, a field will appear and you will have the option to enter a text or variable item.

For the State option, you may select Equal or Not equal from the second drop-down menu, followed by the desired case state.

Return fields

Select this option to add return field to your search. When you click the add option, you may enter a text or variable item in the field. Note you may add multiple return fields.

Recordset name

Recordset name is the field that holds the results of the search the block executed; the text (i.e., value) entered in this field can then be used in a number of subsequent blocks to dictate further actions (e.g., passing the value to a Bright Pattern Create Object block if a contact's name is not found).


Conditional Exits

Failed

The Failed conditional exit is executed if the search operation failed, due to invalid parameters, timeout, or network connectivity to external CRM (e.g., Salesforce).

No Data

The No data conditional exit is executed if no data matching the specified search criteria is found.
