Is there a way to lookup (search for) the name of a breaker?
I've tried the navigation tree, the equipment browser, and the web client, but nothing comes up.

I checked the latest offline 8.2.12 and also couldn't find a way to search for breaker name. Couldn't see anything in the REST API either.
Sounds like a feature request to me ....
But I tried 8.2.7 Export DB and found the Breaker Name in the configuration_item_power_path table in the pp_breaker_label column.
So as far as i can quickly tell, best bet to achieve a "breaker name search capability" is to craft a breaker name web page, update nightly?, and search there. A Custom Property will enable you to launch to this page from any DCO device (from either desktop or web clients) and the ci_id and ci_name in the same row will enable you to locate the asset with the Breaker name and craft a URL to launch directly to that asset (in the web client).
Also, the routine could also ensure the breaker page URL is added to every asset that has breakers, in the power path, even every asset, its up to you.
Sounds like an interesting job to me.
