Wildcards and search operators

The Boolean operators and wildcards can be used on full-text search and exact match fields:

  • AND: all the words separated by the operator must be in the found documents. This is the default operator of all full-text search fields, so you actually just need your keywords and the AND operator is implied. 
  • -: The keyword after this symbol must not be in the found documents. Example: you are looking for all the documents referring to the Nuxeo but not about meetings. Type Nuxeo -meeting.

    You need to keep the - stuck to the word to be excluded. If you put a space between the - and the word after it, the - is ignored.

  • OR: any of the word before "OR" or the word after it must be in the found documents. Example: you are looking for documents that talk either about marketing or about sales. Type marketing OR sales.
  • double quotes (""): the exact expression between quotes must be in the found documents. Example: you are looking for documents that have the sentence "copyright Nuxeo". Type "copyright Nuxeo".
  • *: this symbol replaces zero or more characters. Example: you are looking for documents having meeti- sites as a source (such as meet, meets, meeting, etc). Type  wik* in the Source field of the advanced search or committee documents form.
