I am curious to know if BigIQ offers the same ability to search configuration for Virtuals, pools, etc. as you are able to do in Enterprise Manager? If so, can someone tell me where this feature is hiding or provide a link?
You can do global BIG-IQ configuration search by clicking the magnifying glass icon in the upper-right corner of the screen and type a search string. Search results are grouped by content type.

I think the original question was more how to search for certain items across all devices and get a list of where they are used (e.g. in which Virtuals, pools, etc.).
For instance, in EM you can search for a certain item like an iRule and it will return a list of all Virtuals that use it.
So far, I have not been able to find that same functionality in BIG-IQ (5.4.0).
For certain items (like profiles) you can select the actual item and see what its children are.
However if you're looking for something like a pool it does not appear that you can see which Virtuals it is assigned to.
Maybe I overlooked it. Anyone?
