Filtering assets through custom search queries

In Kili app, you can run custom search queries to retrieve specific assets. Thanks to this, you'll be able to reduce the clutter and increase your focus on the work.

Running custom search using the advanced query builder

You can build your query by using categories referring to:

  • assets, for example Labeled by or Status
  • quality metrics, for example Honeypot or Issues & Questions
  • specific label classes
  • imported metadata, if applicable

📘

How you filter metadata depends on metadata type. For strings (default), you'll use a multi-choice selection. For numbers, you'll use a range of values. For more information on how to edit asset metadata, refer to Adding asset metadata.

By default, when you select several filters, the result will be a combined filter (AND behavior).

📘

You can build your query in the project Queue and in the Explore view. To make your filtering experience better, the selected filters will stay the same while you move between these views.

To start building your query, click Add filter:

Let's say that you want to find all assets that John Doe labeled as "Sports car" or "Limousine". You only want to see John's labels that were not reviewed yet and only the ones where issues were raised.

This is your starting point:

First, you need to select John from the Labeled by list:

24622462

Then click Add filter again and from the Status list select To review and Labeled (you're not sure if the asset has already been moved to the "to review" state, so you need to select both).

24682468

You want to narrow down your search to only two label categories: "Sports car" and "Limousine". Click Add filter again, select Choose a matching category and then select Sports car and Limousine.

24902490

Finally, once again click Add filter and from the Issues & Questions list select Open issues.

24762476

Congratulations! You found the exact asset that you were looking for:

If you have many label categories in your project, you can use the search bar to find the ones you're looking for. Refer to this example video showing a search for a specific category, a specific class, and finally for a specific user:
