Enable Data Search Feature in Sage Enterprise Management V7

Data search feature is a very useful feature in X3 v7, which allows the user to search for any data item in X3 such as sales orders, purchase orders and even business process functions. This feature allows the end user to reach their data point much earlier than following a conventional tree menu structure.

Sometimes, especially after new X3 installations, users can see “Data search failure is not available for the current endpoint” as shown in the figure below.


This search feature can be enabled by following steps below.
