Error Message :

When searching for objects in the Automic Web Interface (AWI) version 12.1, the “Include links” option is not available, so there is no way to find where the object was linked. Both Global and advanced search give the same result in AWI.

"Include links" functionality in JavaUI 12.0.3: 
1)After right-clicking on any object in JavaUI, select option Duplicate/Link/Move, and create link to another folder. 
2)Click on the search, and type in the name of the linked job 
3)Search for object by selecting all types and checking the box “Include links” 
4)Search will show the folder/folders where the link was created previously 

In WebUI: 
Even after creating a link to an object, the links will not be found in either Global or Advanced search. The only result the search gives is the object itself. 



OS Version: N/A
