You can use the advanced search mechanism available in the Dashboard to look up information about:
- Connected accounts
- Invoices and invoice items
When you perform a search, the top results appear immediately. You can view all matches either by clicking Show all results or by pressing Enter. From the resulting groups of search results, you can click View all to see an expanded display with column headings, some of which provide sorting options.
You can use different pieces of information as search terms. Examples include: last four digits of a card or bank account (e.g., 4242), type of payment method (e.g., ideal), business name of a connected Stripe account (e.g., Rocketship), or email receipt number (e.g., 1817-9523).
For searches using dates, you can provide them in different formats, such as 08/22, 2020-07-12, or last week. You can also use object identifiers (e.g., a dispute ID) to take you directly to the object you’re looking for.
No additional context is necessary for most searches. The Dashboard automatically looks for the most relevant information based on your search query. You can make use of search filters and operators for more granular control.
Search filters and operators
By default, the Dashboard looks for values that match your search term in the most logical fields within objects (e.g., an email address in the
Use filters to limit your search terms so they only apply to specific fields within applicable objects. Preface a search term with one of these filters. If your search term must include a space, wrap it in quotation marks, e.g.,
name:"John Doe". Many fields are shared across different objects. For instance,
amount applies to payments, invoices, payouts, etc.
|The amount of an object. For decimal currencies, use a decimal point for both currency units (e.g., dollars and cents).||amount:149.99|
|The brand of card associated with an object.||brand:visa|
|The two-letter ISO code representing the country associated with an object.||country:GB|
|The date an object was created (identical to ||created:2020/07/12|
|The three-letter ISO code representing the currency of an object.||currency:EUR|
|The date an object was created (identical to ||date:yesterday|
|The email (either full address or part of one) of an object.||email:email@example.com|
|The expiration date of the card associated with an object.||exp:08/22|
|The type of flow for customer action that applies to a Sources payment.||flow:redirect|
|The last four digits of the card associated with an object.||last4:4080|
|Metadata value on a supported object. Additional search options for metadata are also available.||metadata:555-5555|

Combining and negating search terms
You can use more than one search term to narrow down your search and reduce the number of results. You can also negate any search filter with a hyphen
- so that matches for it are not included.
|The last four digits of the card are |
|The last four digits of the card are |
|iDEAL payments where the source has been canceled and not used to complete a payment.|
To search for an entire phrase, use quotation marks. For example, “Stripe Shoppe” provides matches for that full phrase, but Stripe Shoppe searches the words Stripe and Shoppe separately.
You can perform searches on metadata that you have added to objects that support it (e.g., payments). Metadata values are automatically included during a search for any text that does not use a filter.
You can use the
metadata: filter so the search term only looks up metadata values. To search for a specific metadata key-value pair, use the metadata key name as a filter, such as
Search to navigate the Dashboard
You can also use search to navigate the Dashboard. For example, if you’re looking for Reviews, type “reviews” in Search.
Many searches can be performed with a single search term. Use something that would be fairly atypical, such as a name or email address. If you are seeing too few results, make the search term less specific. If there are too many results, include additional terms, one at a time.
Use a wider range of values when using dates or amounts as search terms. Currency conversions and time zone differences between you and your customer are a common source of confusion when looking up information about a payment. Use additional search terms or even different ones altogether.
As search terms are included in the URL, you can bookmark the search or share it with other team members as you would any other web page.
