Other Search Engines

You can also search from google, adding the following to your search string will help narrow this down to Clarity related KBs:

      site: clarity
      Example search phrase:
      site: clarity msp caused a serious error


  • Search using multiple keywords as well as error messages from UI, developer tools and logs
  • Add Clarity into search criteria to help narrow down search
  • To search for issues impacting a specific release add the release to your search string. Example: "risk create error 15.9.2". Note that the string will return KBs that are either impacted by an issue or where an issue / enhancement is added. It may not include all related KBs noting, particularly those that impact multiple or all releases. 
  • You may need to search on both abbreviations and full words. Examples below: 
    • For Load DWH, may have to search on “DWH” and “Data Warehouse”
    • For New User Experience issues, search on multiple key words such as New UX, NUX, Modern UX
  • For issues specific to incremental versus full Load DWH, add incremental or full into search
  • See the following KB: Clarity frequently reported issues to help expedite searching
    • Note: KBs contained in these articles are not all inclusive, so if a match for your issue isn’t found, please also search using the CA Support search portal

Communities forum tip

See the following post to utilize the communities to reach out to other customers and support engineers for help: Getting Started with Broadcom Communities
