Search Quickstart

  • Updated

You can quickly search and get insight across your entire digital environment integrated with JupiterOne, from the Search for Anything landing page. There are three modes of search:

  • Ask questions - you can enter any keywords to search across all packaged and saved questions.
  • Full-text search - an easy way to search across all assets based on their property values.
  • JupiterOne query language (J1QL) is best for detailed querying of assets and relationships.

You can toggle results in four different display modes: Table, Graph, Raw JSON, or Pretty JSON.

Note: For performance reasons, search results are limited to return a maximum 250 items. If you believe something is missing from a large result set, try fine-tuning the query to generate more precise results.

Ask Questions

Enter any keyword or combination of keywords such as these (without quotations):

  • compliance
  • access
  • traffic
  • ssh
  • data encrypted
  • production

Or ask a question like:

  • Who are my vendors?
  • What lambda functions do I have in AWS?
  • What is connected to the Internet?
  • Who has access to …?

Full-Text Search

Put your keywords in quotations (for example, "keyword") to start a full text search. Or simply enter your keywords and click Enter. For example,

  • "sg-123ab45c" finds an AWS EC2 security group with that group ID.
  • "Charlie" finds a person and/or user with that first name, and potentially other resources related to that person/user.
  • "jupiterone database" finds database entities with property values that include the keyword "jupiterone".

JupiterOne Query Language (J1QL)

You can use the JupiterOne Query Language (J1QL) for searching for anything across all of your entities and relationships.

The basic query structure is:

  • Start with an asset:

    FIND {class or type of an asset}

  • Optionally, add some property filters:

    WITH {property}={value} AND|OR {property}={value}

  • Get its relationships:

    THAT {relationship_verb}|RELATES TO {class/type of another asset}

For example:

FIND * WITH tag.Production='true'

The wildcard * includes everything.

FIND User THAT IS Person

If you do not know the exact relationship, you can just use the keyword RELATES TO to cover any or all relationships:


You can name an asset or relationship with an alias with the AS {something}. You can then use the alias in WHERE for additional filtering or comparison, or in RETURN for returning specific properties.

For example:

FIND Firewall AS fw
  THAT ALLOWS AS rule (Network|Host) AS n
  rule.ingress=true and rule.fromPort=22
  fw._type, fw.displayName, fw.tag.AccountName,
  n._type, n.displayName, n.tag.AccountName

The query language is case-insensitive except for the following:

  • TitleCase asset keywords after Find and the {relationship verb} search for entities of that class. (for example, CodeRepo).
  • lowercase asset keywords after Find and the {relationship verb} search for assets of that type. An asset type with more than one word is generally in snake_case (for example, github_repo).
  • Asset property names and values, and alias names defined as part of the query, are case-sensitive.

Read the J1QL query tutorial and the complete J1QL documentation for more advanced examples.

Combining Full-Text Search with J1QL

You can also start with a full text search and then use J1QL to further filter the results from the initial search. For example:

Find "Administrator" with _class='AccessPolicy' that ASSIGNED (User|AccessRole)
Find 'security officer' with _type='employee'
Find 'roles responsibilities' with _class=('Policy' or 'Procedure')

Note: Either single quotes (') or double quotes (") work for both full-text search keywords and property string values.
