Pega 7 Platform incorporates a full-text search feature based on Elasticsearch. Depending on settings, developers can search for rules, data instances and work items, and application users can search for work items.
By default, the full-text search facility is enabled for rules, and is accessed by the Designer Studio search facility in the header bar.
This facility uses index files to provide full-text searching. Through settings in the Search landing page tab, you can enable or disable this facility and determine the directory where index files are stored. Indexes are updated in the background periodically, during the system pulse performed by the Pega-RULES agent — typically once a minute.
When you update settings on the Search landing page tab, scroll to the bottom of the display to locate and click the Submit button. Your settings do not take effect until you submit your changes.
And if you are using lower version, then we need to update some DSS settings, which you will find in the below PDN link:
