Managing Saved Searches
If you create a search query that you find especially helpful, you can save it so that you can use it at a later date. These searches are stored in the vertical toolbar and you can access them at any time.
You can save each unique query once. After it's saved, you can edit some basic information about the saved search.
Saved searches are only visible to the user that created them.
Saving Search Queries
Each time you create a new saved search, it's automatically stored in IdentityNow.
To save a search query:
Sign in to IdentityNow and go to Search.
Enter your search query that you want to save and run the query.
Select Save Search.
The Save Search window appears.
Enter a name and description for your saved search, then select Save.
Your saved search appears in the vertical toolbar under the heading Saved Search Queries.
To run this search and view the results of the query, including the columns displayed at the time you saved it, select the name of the query in the vertical toolbar.
Viewing and Editing Saved Searches
You can view the details of your saved search, including its name, description, and other settings.
The search query you saved isn't editable. To save a different search query, create a new saved search.
Sign in to IdentityNow and go to Search.
In the toolbar, select the Star icon to access your saved searches.
The details of your saved search are displayed. You can select Edit to make changes to the name or description of this search or Delete to delete the saved search.
Once you have completed your changes, select Update.
Subscribing to Saved Searches
You can configure IdentityNow to generate automatic emails on a regular schedule that contain the results of a saved search query. You can define how often these emails are sent and who they are sent to. Each saved search can have up to 10 subscriptions configured.
Scheduled searches return items from the results tab that was selected when you created the saved search.
To subscribe to a saved search:
Select the Star icon in the side menu in Search to view your saved searches.
Select the Clock icon next to the search to display existing subscriptions. To create a subscription, select New Subscription on the displayed page or in the dropdown list of subscriptions.
Select a time zone for this search subscription and select Next.
Choose a schedule for your subscription. The following options are available:
- Daily - Select the times of day you'd like to receive an email about your subscription The times you select will show up on the right next to the drop-down. Select the x next to the time to remove it from the list. Daily is the default option.
- Weekly - Select the days of the week and times you'd like to receive an email about the subscription using the checkboxes. The times you select will show up on the right next to the drop-down. Select the x next to the day or time to remove it from the list.

You can only use one schedule option at a time. For example, if you start with a weekly schedule but move to monthly, your weekly subscription will end.
On the Information page, define the details used to create the email subscription including Name, Description, and the following other options:
- Other Subscribers - You are automatically subscribed to subscriptions you create. You also can add other people who'll receive the email subscription.
