Subject [jira] [Commented] (ATLAS-1608) Search UI improvement
Date Mon, 06 Mar 2017 07:38:32 GMT


Madhan Neethiraj commented on ATLAS-1608:

[~ssainath] - good questions!

bq. 1. What is meant by making Search Tab default ? 
When user logs into Atlas, the left navigation shows 'Tags' tab as selected. Given that most
people would be interested in searching for an entity/tag/word in Atlas, showing 'Search'
as the default seems more useful

bq. 2. Basic search (Full Text Search) also shows both Search by type and Search by query
like DSL Search which seems confusing to the user
In a deployment with large number of entities/tags, full-text search returns a lot of results
and the user might have to be click through multiple pages to find what they were looking
for. For example, while trying to find a table by its name using full-text search, the result
would also contain many column objects. Hence providing typeName and classificationName filters
could be helpful to narrow the search result.
DSL is for the advanced users, who mastered the syntax. However, most business users may not
be comfortable with this interface.

bq. 3. In Tags Tab ,we have DSL search of tag already. Basic Search has Search by tag. Why
do we have tag search in Basic search ?
Same as #2 above.
