Search in Artifactory provides true real-time results that always reflect the current state of the repository with no need to periodically rebuild indexes. Therefore, search results will immediately show any artifacts deployed, and will not show any artifacts removed. The * and ? wildcards are supported in your search term to help you narrow down your search. After conducting a search, you can hover over any result item for available actions such as:

Download the artifact
Show in Tree
Displays the artifact within the Tree Browser where you can view its full details
Delete the artifact
titleUsing wildcards

When searching with the Artifactory UI, Artifactory performs prefix matching for search terms in all the different search modes. For example, searching for jfrog is equivalent to searching for jfrog*. You can still use the * and ? wildcards by placing in your search term in double-quotes to help you narrow down your search (for example, "a*.jar").
