You can examine the details about your devices by looking at their profiles, which displays the data that Axonius collected and correlated from multiple sources.

To Achieve this Milestone
Search for a device and examine its profile using one of the following methods:
- Search bar on Axonius Dashboard - to search for a specific asset.
- Devices page - run a saved query or create your own to get a desired list of devices.
Searching for Assets
The search bar in the Axonius dashboard page enables free text search to identify and investigate a specific asset.
To search for assets:
- Open the the Axonius Dashboard page by clicking the icon on the left navigation panel.
- Enter the text to be searched.
When you search for a specific text, the search is executed on the main device or user attributes, including:
- Devices - asset name, host, manufacturer serial number, MAC addresses, IP addresses, last used users and tags.
- Users - mail, username, first name, last name, tag.
- The Search page opens, displaying the results in two separate tables, Devices and Users, sorted by the number of solutions discovered the asset ('Adapter' column).
- In the search page, you can:
- Investigate a specific asset - click any device or user record to review its details. For details, see Device Profile page and [User Profile page]/docs/user-profile-screen).
- View the entire device or user list of results - click 'View in Devices' or 'Click in Users' will display the complete list of results. For details, see Devices page and Users page.
You can add Axonius as an "other search engine" in Google Chrome to search for assets in Axonius directly from Google Chrome address bar.
For more details, see Searching for Assets.

To create and run your own query:
From the Devices page, click Query Wizard on the top right corner above the Devices table.
