Thats what search attributes are for. But i guess that does not answer your question, so can you explain your case?
Lets say I have an entity: Database with an attribute: type (which can be oracle, DB2, etc)
The user would like to navigate to the relevant form straight away instead of having to search for all the oracle databases. Using a navigation tree: tier1:CMDB -> tier2:Software,Database,Hardware,etc -> tier3(for Database):Oracle,DB2,SQL .....
Quick links in a way.
