When trying to search for variables defined in the object in Variables&Prompts, search would not give any results. This is applicable in AWI and JavaUI. 

Investigation

In JavaUI 
1) Define a Variable in Variable in Prompts 
2) Save the object 
3) Search for the object in Further options, and selecting everything when searching for objects in Objects tab. 

In AWI 
1) In V11 and V12, use global search; 
2) in 12.1, use advanced search: input variable name in Object Contest filter and search for object 
Environment:
OS Version: N/A
Cause:
Cause type:
By design
Root Cause: This behavior is by design.
Resolution:
The search in variables only searches in OBJECTS of the type 'VARIABLE' (=VARA), not in the defined variables in a script.  This is as designed
