How do I search a Component based on text in the hyperlink field?

I need to update the hyperlink from certain components among thousands of components. Problem is that I don't know how to search these components by using Tridion search, tried searching the text from hyperlink but no results were found.

If anyone can provide the answer, it will be a great help.

Thanks in advance.

  • can you give an example of what the hyperlink you are searching for looks like and what search terms have you tried? I think the challenge is finding the correct search term, since CM content is indexed by words, and a link doesn't contain spaces, so is considered a single word with special characters (provided that it is actually indexed) Mar 4, 2015 at 16:49

Assuming you're looking for a hyperlink that appears within a field you've defined in your component schema, you ought to be able to use the advanced search options to limit your search to specific fields within components.

Advanced search in Tridion

To open the advanced search field, tick the little triangle next to the normal search bar. Then choose "Based on Schema", and select your particular Schema. Then choose the name of the Schema field which contains hyperlink.

Now you should be able to search for a relevant text string, like a meaningful part of a hyperlink, in that Search Term field.
