When you enter a search query in Ytria's Help database (or Ytria web site) it uses the IBM Notes and Domino full-text search. However, unlike the typical Notes full-text search, the 'and' operator is automatically added between search terms. This means you must enclose your search within square brackets to use Web-enabled operators when searching Ytria's Help. Please visit this page on IBM's site to read more about the Web-enable operators and how the IBM Notes search function works or read below for a very basic introduction.
Ytria's Web site and Help searches now automatically add the 'AND' operator between terms. This means you should not type 'AND' between search terms because a superfluous 'AND' will affect your search results.
For example, to find pages that include both the terms "scanEZ" and "conflict" just enter enter the following:
You can escape this 'automatic and' feature by enclosing your search in square brackets. This can be helpful when you need to use other operators like 'or'... or when 'and' is part of the literal string.
["clean and sign"]
[sign or audit]
Some Common Wildcards and Operators
For more detailed information please consult your IBM Notes help.
|?||A question mark represents any single character.||Searching for: ????EZ will bring up pages with "scanEZ," "viewEZ" and "signEZ," but not "aclEZ," "actionBarEZ," "agentEZ" or "designPropEZ."|
|*||An asterisk represents multiple characters.||Searching for: *EZ will bring up pages with "scanEZ," "actionBarEZ," "aclEZ," "pez," "fez," etc.|
|Note ||Since our Web site and Help search now automatically adds an 'and' operator between search terms, you should enclose searches that contain more than one term in square brackets if you wish to use operators.|
|AND*||If you insert 'AND' or 'and' between two terms the search will search for pages containing both terms. ||Searching for: [aclEZ AND agentEZ] will return pages that mention both tools.|
|Inserting the word OR between search terms will return pages with one or another of the terms.||Searching for: [aclEZ OR agentEZ] will return pages that mention either of these tools or both of them.|
|NOT will make any search term negative, i.e. return pages that don't contain the term.||Searching for: [acl AND NOT aclEZ] will return pages that contain "ACL" but not "aclEZ" like the pages on scanEZ's ACL features. |
|""||If you place terms in double quotes they will be treated as a string and any operators will be just regarded as normal words.||Search for: ["Clean and sign"] will only return pages that contain that entire string, not pages have the words "clean" and "sign" in separate areas.|
|()||Parentheses determine the order in which search terms are processed. The part enclosed in parentheses will be processed first.||Searching for: [scanEZ AND (replication OR post-replication)] will return pages that include "scanEZ" and either "replication," "post-replication," or both "replication" and "post-replication." |
|*Note ||As of August 2009, this operator is automatically assumed between search terms unless the search is enclosed in square brackets.|
