Search for playbooks using an specific subplaybook

L4 Transporter


I'm changing a subplaybook which could affect to many playbooks. Is there a way to know in which playbooks are used this specific subplaybook?

Hi @Josep 


Thank you for reaching out about this.

If you are looking for a subplaybook in playbooks, you can search for it in Playbook Library page by using ""

The result will display all of playbooks that includes the subplaybook that you searched for.

This allows to search by task name... but if we change the task name for example to "enrich IPs" but the subplaybook name is "Custom IP Enrichment" than this will not find those playbooks. Any option to search by the name of executed subplaybook or automation? 


I solved it  exporting the XSOAR data and searching for automation name inside the folder downloaded.


1. "Settings"->"About"->"Torubleshooting"->At the end of it, in "Custom content" click Export.

2. Unzip the file.

3. Open the folder in any editor, "Notepad" or "Visual Studio Code".

4. Right click on the folder inside the editor.

5. "Search" or "Find" by keywords(automation name, playbook name, operators)

6. Results will show the automation, lists, playbooks using the keyword.

Thank you for sharing your.. let's call it 'workaround' in detail, Josep.
I had the challenge to find all playbooks where a specific configuration bit was used.
