The user can set any number of search criteria. When more than one criteria are specified, the search action will return Authorisations that satisfy all the specified criteria.

After the search criteria have been set, the user may initiate the search action by clicking the “Search” button. Alternatively, clicking the “Reset” button will cause the search criteria section to be reverted back to the default status i.e. all the search criteria values will be removed. Clicking the “Reset” button will not affect the results section.

Technical Characteristics Search Criteria specification

The technical characteristics criterion can contain value comparisons for any of the technical characteristics. To set the criterion the user must click the arrow icon next to the criterion (shown in the previous image). The popup that appears, shown in the next image, allows the user to specify technical characteristics and their values to search for. If more than one technical characteristics are represented, then the system will look for Authorisations on Vehicle Types that satisfy all the filters at the same time.

In case the User selects to search Vehicle Types based on the “Type of end coupling” parameter, the system displays two additional optional search fields for “Compressive forces” and “Tensile forces”. These search fields expect decimal numbers in kN.

Results Section

The results of the search actions are presented in the results section shown in Figure 72. The results are presented in a table grid. The grid contains the following columns:

Additionally the user may perform the following actions on the search results (see highlihgted sections in image above):

  1. Alter the page size: this will refresh the results grid and the number of pages will be adjusted accordingly.
  2. Export the results into a file: for more information see Export Results Help Page.
  3. Navigate through the results pages.
