V.4.1.3.1 Query Search Method

The following procedure is used to generate matches.

The key match attributes contained in the Identifier of the C-FIND request are matched against the values of the Key Attributes for each Query entity. For each entity for which the Attributes match all of the specified match attributes, construct an Identifier. This Identifier shall contain all of the values of the Attributes for this entity that match those in the C-FIND request. Return a response for each such Identifier. If there are no matching keys, then there are no matches; return a response with a status equal to Success and with no Identifier.
