3. Searching for an Entity

Use the Dashboard to find any entity in the system.

Now that we created an entity, let's look at how to use the Dashboard to find them.

We created the user Entity Name Larry Baker in the previous section with the Entity ID Baker01.

Unit21 automatically generated a numerical ID for Baker called the Unit21 ID; typically a number such as 719170349.

12001200 12001200

Your Unit21 ID might be a little different since this is automatically generated when you create the entity.

Simply enter the Unit21 ID you recorded for your user in Step 2 of the tutorial.

  1. Go ahead and Clear Filter to reset the search.

Find an Entity in the Search Bar


  1. From any page in your Dashboard, open your top level search bar:
12001200
  1. Here you search for an entity by Entity ID, Unit21 ID, User Name and much more:
12001200

Next, we will be performing identity verification for Baker to make sure he is a legitimate entity.
