Device Serial Search Improvements
AutoFocus now pre-populates a list of firewalls when you search based on Device Serial numbers. This allows you to select a firewall from a preloaded list of serial numbers or, alternatively, auto-completes based on a partial match.
  1. Run an advanced AutoFocus search using the Device Serial artifact.
  2. When using search operators that require a value, you can:
    • Enter an incomplete firewall serial number value to retrieve a list of partial matches.
    • Select from a list of firewall serial numbers.

      If you have more than 1,000 devices attached to your account, AutoFocus does not pre-populate device list searches; as a result, you cannot select from a preloaded list or retrieve a list of partial matches. Instead, search results are returned based on the selected operator and serial number input.
