of the application object (Component, License, Owner, Package, Product, "Global"),
ordering the results by exact match first.
If the simple search returns nothing, a second step searches the application object by
field ranking, using fields in the application object that help identify it.
Search results are ordered by
text string matches

You can reorder the search results simply by clicking the up or down arrow next to a
