Search with commas in multi value text field

Good day.
 I have a custom type, defined with a multi value propertie named imus:toirCodesProperty
defined as:
property name="imus:toirCodesProperty">
I have configured advanced search, and the relevant part of my share-config-custom.xml 
looks like this:

field id="imus:toirCodesProperty" label-id="prop.imus_toirCodesProperty">
<control template="/org/alfresco/components/form/controls/textarea.ftl"/>

If I perform a search with commas, then I get an empty result.
The query:
query=TYPE:"imus:attachment" AND (imus:toirCodesProperty:(1234, 1785)).

But if I enter a logical operator in the control, the query succeeds.
The query:
query=TYPE:"imus:attachment" AND (imus:toirCodesProperty:(1234 or 1785)).

Can commas be used for searching in multi value text field?

Thank you.

The comma in the Apache Lucene Query Parser Is not managed as you can see in the official documentazione ( Apache Lucene - Query Parser Syntax ).

For properties that are multiple, you need to repeat the name of the property for each value are you searching for.

I Hope i was helpful,
