When I enter a string into the quick search in Hyperview, more search results are provided than I expected. Why does Hyperview show so many search results?
The quick search in Hyperview utilizes Azure's cognitive search to enrich all types of information to help you identify relevant content. Searches includes indexes for all asset names, properties, and property values, so it is likely that a simple search term may provide more results that anticipated.
You may be seeing a lot of search results because your search string was too generic. Include search operators to enhance the quick search query syntax and provide more accurate results.
Examples of search operators:
"" (quotes) - KEYWORD Operator - A search term between quotation marks will only give results that match that exact string.
+ (plus) - AND Operator - Two search terms combined with a plus symbol stipulates that the search results must contain both terms.
| (pipe) - OR Operator - Two search terms combined with a pipe symbol stipulates that the search results must contain either terms. This is the default conjunction operator, so the pipe symbol is optional.
- (minus) - NOT Operator - Interpreted as AND NOT. Two search terms combined with the minus symbol will return results that match the frist term AND NOT the second term.
*(asterisk) - WILDCARD Operator - The asterisk symbol represents one of more characters of arbitrary length. Similar to a LIKE search.
- \ (backslash) - ESCAPE Operator - In order to search for terms that contain any operators as part of the search token, then the character must be escaped. Insert a single backslash before any operator to escape it from acting as an operator in the search.
