Search Custom Metadata (not metadata templated custom metadata)

Is there a way to find files which are tagged with custom metadata (not template version) using the Box UI?


By Box UI - do you mean the normal web application or ui elements?

If you mean the web app, you can click the filter button in the search bar, select metadata, pick a template, and enter data for that template. It will then return matching content based on the input.


Normal box I.e search box at the top

Also must add this metadata is not a template metadata

Got it. There is not currently a way to use to the Box search function in the web app to filter based on global metadata that isn’t in a template.

While you cannot use the search Metadata filters for this case, the free text search (the default search box) can be used to search for documents containing the Custom Metadata values.
