When using the Search Engine to look for documents, it is also possible to search for specific system attributes.
To do so, the search query has to be written as such:
sysatt_<Attribute Alias>:<Searched value>
(Note that Attribute Alias is case sensitive)

The document having the Change Request Number "123ABC" could be searched with:
All documents having a Change Request Number starting with 123 could be searched with:
