Zim Object Manager (ZOM)

Selecting by Keyword

< All Topics

Objects can be selected by keyword using the selection criteria “k” followed by the keyword (s) to match. All objects that have been assigned the given keyword (s) are selected. For example, in the following command, all objects that have been assigned the keyword “User_Interface” are selected for use by the ZOMLIST service:

ZOMList +k User_Interface

The keyword criteria performs an keyword match against a specified keyword, and finds all objects which have been assigned that keyword.

The keyword can also be specified as a character string pattern. For example, the following command lists all objects that have been assigned keywords that begin with “Version2”:

ZOMList +k Version2*

The rules for specifying keyword patterns are the same as for selecting by name.

If more than one keyword is used with the same selection criteria, you can use commas to separate the keywords. The following examples both select all objects assigned the keywords “Version1”, “Version2” or “Version3”:

ZOMList +k Version1 +k Version2 +k Version3

ZOMList +k Version1,Version2,Version3

In the latter case, we have combined the three selection items into a single selection by separating the three keywords by commas (‘,’).
