Search Results

Search results, i.e. the list of products matching the search, are presented in form of a table. Individual product as always shown. In addition product packages, if defined by the product publisher, may be included in the search results too. Subscribing to a product package is essentially the same as subscribing to all products included in the package but it simplifies the management.
The search results can be sorted by a particular column by clicking onto the column header once for ascending and a second time for descending order.
The table is displayed as multiple pages if more items are found.

the search returned this product metadata and you have rights to access the product instances
