Search Syntax

Generally based on dtSearch rules.

Example1: Words entered together are presumed to be a phrase, but common word exclusions could affect results.

Example2: Words or names containing characters (e.g., AT&T) are not readily searchable.

Example3: Negation - A NOT B is acceptable syntax.

Example4: Proximity may be expressed using w/# or /#/ connectors.

Example5: Common words contained in a list in Review Manager are not indexed and not searchable.

RQL offers deeper and more efficient options, but does not require knowledge of advanced syntax to be effective.

Example1: words entered together require quotation marks to be treated as a phrase in Keyword search, and common words are evaluated searched in context. Phrases may be entered without quotation marks for Concept searches.

Example2: words or names containing characters (e.g., "AT&T") are searchable as a phrase if entered between quotation marks.

Example3: Negation searches require either AND NOT or OR NOT (e.g., dog AND NOT cat, cat OR NOT canary).

Example4: Proximity may only be expressed using w/# connector (e.g., cargo w/3 shipping).

Example5: Common words - Reveal 11 uses different Elasticsearch analyzers: instead of using the StopFilter to keep common words from being indexed, the CommonGramsFilter is used instead to support efficient searching of common words.
