The search icon appears at the top of every page on Axonius. Note that you can use the Query Wizard to create granular queries to define a wide variety of filters, from which you can easily drill down to the assets that match the required search criteria.
You can add Axonius as 'new' search engine in Google Chrome to search for assets in Axonius directly from the Google Chrome address bar.

Searching for a Specific Asset

  • Devices - Host Name, Asset Name, Device Manufacturer Serial number, MAC addresses, IP addresses, Last Used Users, and Tags.
  • Users - User Name, Mail, First Name, Last Name, and Tags.

The Search page opens on a new page, displaying the results in two separate tables, Devices and Users, sorted by the number of solutions discovered for the asset (Adapter Connections column).


In the search page, you can:

  • Investigate a specific asset - Click any device or user record to review its details. For details, see Asset Profile page.
  • View the entire device or user list of results - Click View in Devices or View in Users to display the complete list of results. For details, see Devices page and Users page. Click the application icons in the side panel to return to the page you were on.
