Firefox Quick Search bookmarks for searching Automic web pages

    If you use Firefox, you may find this useful. I have created several Quick Search bookmarks and assigned them keywords so that I can quickly perform searches directly from the address bar. For example, if I want to search the Automation Engine version 12 documentation for the term “file transfer”, I simply type “ae12 file transfer” into the Firefox address bar and hit Enter. Below are some of the Quick Search bookmarks I use often.

      1. CA Support – open specific case

        Location: https://comm.support.ca.com/csupport/CaseManagement/cases/cn/%s
        Keyword: cai

        Description: Go to a specific CA Support incident/case.

      2. CA Support – general search

        Location: Unknown
        https://automic.force.com/support/CommunitySearchResult?str=%22%s%22&type=default

        Keyword: cas

        Description: Go straight to the specified CA Support incident.

      3. CA Automic Workload Automation – knowledge base search

        Keyword: awakb

        Description: Search the AWA knowledge base.

      4. CA Automic Release Automation – knowledge base search

        Location: https://support.ca.com/us/product-information/ca-automic-release-automation.html?d=t&language=en&type=ALL&sortby=daten&typeofcontent=Knowledge%20Base%20Articles&q=%22%s%22
        Keyword: arakb

        Description: Search the ARA knowledge base.

      5. CA Automic Dollar Univers – knowledge base search

        Location: https://support.ca.com/us/product-information/ca-automic-dollar-universe.html?d=t&language=en&type=ALL&sortby=daten&typeofcontent=Knowledge%20Base%20Articles&q=%22%s%22 
        Keyword: adukb

        Description: Search the Dollar Universe knowledge base

      6. CA Communities – general search

        Location: https://communities.ca.com/search?q=%22%s%22
        Keyword: cac
        Description: Search the CA Communities for discussion threads containing the specified keyword.
      7. Automation Engine v12.1 documentation search

        Location: https://docs.automic.com/documentation/webhelp/english/AWA/12.1/DOCU/12.1/AWA%20Guides/help.htm#search-%22%s%22
        Keyword: ae12
        Description: Search v12.1 Automic Workload Automation guides for the specified keyword.
      8. Automation Engine v12.1 messages search

        Location:  https://docs.automic.com/documentation/webhelp/english/AWA/12.1/AE/12.1/Messages/Messages.htm#search-%22%s%22
        Keyword:
         msg12
        Description:
        Search v12.1 Automation Engine messages documentation for the specified keyword.
      9. Automation Engine v12.1 Java API search

        Location:  https://www.google.com/search?&q=site%3Adocs.automic.com%2Fdocumentation%2Fwebhelp%2Fenglish%2FAWA%2F12.1%2FAE%2F12.1+%22%s%22
        Keyword:
         api12
        Description: 
        Search v12.1 Automation Engine Java API documentation for the specified keyword.
      10. Automation Engine v11.2 DB schema search

        Keyword:
         db11
        Description: 
        Search v11.2 Automation Engine  DB schema documentation for the specified keyword. (The v12.1 DB schema documentation does not appear to be indexed by Google.)

     

    A few details:

    • %s is replaced by whatever you type after the keyword.
    • %22 represents the " character, and is used in some URLs to ensure that keywords containing spaces or punctuation work more reliably.
    • The URLs use Google where native search facilities (hosted on ca.com or automic.com) do not exist.

    I hope you find these useful. They save me a lot of time. Enjoy!

    Update: The discussions forum software appears to have automatically replaced the %22 with the " character in the Locations of the Quick Search bookmarks I described above. You may have more luck if you switch these URLs back to using %22 in place of the " character.

    Hey Michael, I changed the tags around the URLs from <pre> to <code>. Does it look correct?

    Yup. Much better. Thanks!

    Cool. Glad that fixed the look. Now I just need to work on the styling a bit...  :)

    This morning, Automic switched its support site from ServiceNow to SalesForce. Some of the quick searches I described above no longer work. I have come up with some approximate replacements.


    These searches unfortunately list all items, including closed ones. I have not yet figured out how to limit the results to only open items.

    I updated these QuickSearch URLs.

    I added URLs for:
    • Automation Engine v12.1 Java API search
    • Automation Engine v11.2 DB schema search
    Both of these use Google because native search facilities (hosted on automic.com) do not exist for these portions of the documentation. The DB schema search URL points to the older v11.2 documentation because the v12.1 DB schema documentation is not currently indexed by Google.

    Following the weekend’s migration of Automic support content to CA.com, I updated the communities search URL to search the CA Communities. I have not been able to identify the correct URL for searching CA Support content such as incidents and knowledge base articles.

    LuuLe kindly pointed out that the URL format for opening a particular case directly is:

    https://comm.support.ca.com/csupport/CaseManagement/cases/cn/case_number 

    where case_number is the eight-digit case ID, with leading zeros.

    Most of these URLs no longer work following the acquisition of CA by Broadcom. I started a new thread here though:
