[protege-discussion] Key-Word Search in WebProtege

Hi Elena,

I've confirmed that the search does run against class URIs and not 
against the property that is rendered in the front end. I've created a 
GForge ticket so that we can work to correct this at some later point.

More details can be found in the ticket here (you will need a GForge 
account, which can be requested online, to view):
