You can configure layers in ArcGIS Prousing the Locate pane to find features that match particular attribute values. For example, you can search a layer containing all the fast food restaurants in North America by manager name, search a layer containing 800 well sites by ID number, or search a layer containing California airports by 3-letter airport code. This feature is designed to quickly search large layers containing hundreds, thousands, or even millions of features to find the one feature you're looking for.
Find a feature using the Locate pane
Feature search is performed in the Locate pane, alongside geocoding. In addition to the locators that are added from your portal connection by default, you can add additional locators to the project or select layers from your maps to configure feature search in the Locate pane. Layers are configured for search within the Locate pane by selecting individual fields to search against and specifying where to perform an exact search or an approximate search. Once a layer is configured for search, it appears in the Find Providers list with the locators. You can re-order the locators and layers on the Settings tab of the Locate pane in order to set preferred search order. Results are returned in the order you set for the find providers.
You can use the Locate pane to search against a configured layer to generate a list of matches. Once the results are displayed, you can navigate to each feature by double-clicking an item in the results list to zoom to it on the map. You can also activate Candidate Pop-up from the Explore tool on the Map ribbon to view a pop-up with detailed information about a feature result. From Candidate Pop-up, you can perform several actions, including selecting the feature.
