Search for Registry Attributes
In the Omnibar, when you perform a search between two registry attributes, the Omnibar adds an explicit AND operator. Previously, it used an OR operator. This was changed so that search results would include all relevant information.
For example, to search for all services that have Compliance Certifications = NONE AND Business HQ = USA, all relevant results are returned.
Usually, for registry attributes within the same category, the Omnibar defaults to an OR operator. This is an exception for registry attributes where it uses an AND operator.
For values within a single registry attribute, the Omnibar continues to use an OR operator. For example, "Compliance attribute = ISO 27001, ISO 27018, HIPAA, FISMA" performs an OR between the four values belonging to the same attribute.
