|Title:||INTEGRATED SEARCH RESULTS|
A storage management system receives at a computing system one or more search results from a search operation based on a search query. The search operation had performed a first search on content in a database accessible through an application, a second search on local to the computing system content, and a third search on Web content. At least one of the search results from the first search is associated with an application identifier identifying the application. The storage management system further ranks the search results from the first search, the second search, and the third search in aggregation. A search results integrator presents the ranked search results from the first, second, and third searches in an integrated view. The search results integrator further groups a subset of the ranked search results from the first search, the second search, and the third search into a subgroup within the integrated view.
