The search bar in the Axonius dashboard page allows you to use free text search to identify and investigate a specific asset.
You can add Axonius as an "other search engine" in Google Chrome to search for assets in Axonius directly from Google Chrome address bar.

Searching for a Specific Asset

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.
  • View the entire device or user list of results - click 'View in Devices' or 'Click in Users' to display the complete list of results. For details, see Devices page and Users page.
