As of ArcGIS Pro 1.1.1 searching for data in your portal site on the Project pane doesn't have an option to limit results to data that intersects the current map extent. ArcGIS Pro should have a spatial filter option just like ArcGIS Online to make search results more relevant and make it easier to find the right data.


ArcGIS Pro has search options documented at: http://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/help/projects/search--and-project-items.htm but I do not see any reference to spatial search filtering.    In ArcMap, there are options to perform spatial search as “Map-based spatial search”-- http://desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/latest/map/working-with-arcmap/using-search-in-arcgis.htm with options for “Any Extent”, "Within Current Extent" or “Within or Overlapping Current Extent” .  It would be very powerful if a user could specify map based spatial filtering/search and specify not only the extent but also apply this to a specific map in an ArcGIS Pro project.
