    thanks for the reply...
    i would like to search for some files from the repository and when a keyword is given, the search has to retreive the files that contain that particular file and so on..

    Understand the the Pentaho BI platform is a platform to execute actions that you have defined. It may not necessarily be aware of the data.

    If you are looking to search for actual data, then either:
    - Consider this an operational database requirement and build a separate
    interface to do this, for example using home grown scripts. You don't
    need Pentaho to do this, but you can integrate your solution with Pentaho.
    - Create a Pentaho report that will prompt for filter values.

    If you are looking to search the Pentaho platform metadata (for example names and descriptions of the xactions themselves), then I could see the need for this, Try putting in a feature request and see what happens.
