Querying for Variables

The data dictionary (i.e. the variables) can be searched for. Each variable properties, Categories and Attributes are indexed in Opal’s search engine. Each time a table is updated, its data dictionary is automatically re-indexed, ensuring an up-to-date variable search service.

Note that variables of a table are always indexed (with a latency of 1 minute), whereas the indexing of the table values can be scheduled.
