  2. Choose the desired operator from the drop-down list. See Advanced Search for details about each of the operators in this drop-down list.
  3. Enter a value to search for the desired commenter.
  4. Select Search.

  • To search for all records that contain comments, you can select Exists from the operator drop-down list in the Collaboration section of the Advanced Search window.

Enabling Comment Searching

To enable the ability to search for comments, Your L3 Configuration file must be modified to add an attribute, "Commenters" to each entity type for which you wish to be able to search for collaborative comments.

Here is an example of an L3 Configuration file that has the Commenters attribute added for the Organization entity type:

"label": "Commenters",
"name": "Commenters",
"description": "Commenters",
"type": "String",
"hidden": true,
"important": false,
"system": false,
"attributeOrdering": {
"orderType": "ASC",
"orderingStrategy": "LUD"
"uri": "configuration/entityTypes/Organization/attributes/Commenters",
"skipInDataAccess": false
