Discovery Accelerator search terms & syntax
Using the default Discovery Accelerator 5.0 SP4 web console, with no customization:
I am not able to find a definitive list of permissible Boolean terms and search operators for D.A., so here are the specific items I have been waiting on a support call to answer...
In a training manual, the minus sign - has been indentified as being a sign for NOT operator. There was no example given for its use and I am getting conflicting results in my testing. To use - as NOT what is the correct syntax?
-baseball (sign and term run together)
- baseball (space in between sign and term)
-"baseball" (sign with term in quotes)
- "baseball" (sign, space, term in quotes)
football -baseball (term A, not term B)
Is it possible to extend the search using the NOT operation? For example, my users want to be able to search for (any of A, B, or C) NOT (any ofD, E, or F). Hits should consist of anything with terms A B or C but no hits should contain any of D E or F.
The users may also want to search along the lines of (A B or C) OR (D, E, or F) NOT (X, Y, Z).
How much can be done outside of customizing the search tool or using scripts to customize the searches? There doesn't seem to be any user-oriented documentation other than the training manual, and that manual only has specific examples for wild card searches using *
