A number of things such as customers, patients and products can be given 'identities'.  There are a number of different types of identities such as Alias, Microchip, Barcode, etc.  These are essentially just different ways of identifying the item.

The select screens, where applicable, allow you to search by identity.  Note that when doing so you are not able to search a specific type of identity, the search is done across all identities as well as the IDs.

Hence searching patients for the identity '123' will return any that have microchips, pet tags, aliases, or IDs starting 123.
