How to create search query in Share

Jump to solution

Hi, 

I created my own model and node type (mycustomtype). Now I would like to search according to these parameters via Share. I know how to create own form in advanced search, but  I would like to define a search query (and / or for individual properties).

Is it possible? 

Thank you.

Hi @miroslav 

You should be able to search for properties like so:

dc:company:Hyland

This will limit search against a single property (dc:company).

To test this I created a custom content type called Whitepaper (following this example). This has 3 properties, one being dc:company

I created a Whitepaper and added Hyland as the company. Search for dc:company:Hyland returns one result:

I also created a standard document & added the word "Hyland" in the name, title, body & description. Searching for "Hyland" returns only this document:

Searching for dc:company:Hyland or TEXT:Hyland returns both documents.

You can perform search strings in different syntaxes:

The most common is AFTS, that has a wide variety of operators:

Hi @miroslav 

Search tips shows you can search against such terms. It has an example of using 

creator:username

but creator:username searches against all nodes, including folders, etc.

This result looks like it searched for "admin" or "eddie" everywhere, including within document text, titles, etc.

Thank you, the problem was with solr indexing. You can enter FTS expressions in the simple search field and that's exactly what I need.
