Is it possible to use the search in the CP to search let's say by id? Or even one of the fields?

Thanks in advance, Sidney

You can search any of your fields using the syntax "fieldHandle: search term".

See http://buildwithcraft.com/docs/searching for more info.

There is a new plugin that lets you do just this: https://plugins.craftcms.com/omnisearch

Full disclosure: I'm the author of this plugin.
