+NiFi UI's search functionality supports a number of "keywords". These are literals used to
execute search based on non-textual information. A keyword is used only in case of the search
term consists of a section of the keyword or matches with it. In case the keyword is only
the subset of the search term, the keyword is not picked for usage. The keywords are case-insensitive.
The supported keywords are the following:
 
 Review comment:
   I think these document sections should be worded as simply as possible.
   `literal` for example in the sense it is used here is a computer science specific expression
and meant to be used for fixed values in the _source code_.

   Users can use pre-defined (case-insensitive) keywords in the search box that will check
certain conditions (instead of trying to match labels and values etc.).
   Keywords can be used with filters (see below) but not with other search terms (otherwise
they won't be treated as keywords) and only one keyword can be used at a time.
   Note however that keywords will also be treated as general search terms at the same time.
   The supported keywords are the following:
