You can search within a data flow to locate a specific node or property value. This allows you to quickly find and change property values throughout your document, or to find and replace nodes of a specific type. This can be particularly useful when working with large, complex data flows, where only a small proportion of the nodes are visible on the canvas at any one time.
The search is case-insensitive and the extent of the search depends on where you are located within the data flow. If you are at the top level of the data flow, the search will cover all items. If you are within a composite, the search will only cover the contained items.

Filter your search by specifying where to look for the text. Choose from:
- Node name - Search for nodes by name. This is the name that you have given to a selected instance of a node.
- Node type - Search for nodes by type. The node type is the default node name, as listed in the Nodes panel.
For example, the following image shows an Aggregate node (node type) named Revenue Analysis (node name):
