The objectPath and customMetadataContent properties and tokenized content properties match text in the object path or custom metadata.

Text-based property values are text strings consisting of one or more

UTF-8 characters. The string is interpreted as one or more search terms, where each search term is a sequence of either alphabetic or numeric characters. All other characters, except wildcards, are treated as term separators.

For example, the string product123 contains two search terms — product and 123. A query based on this string finds objects for which the specified property contains at least one of product and 123.

Search terms match only complete alphabetic or numeric strings in paths or custom metadata. For example, the text strings AnnualReport, 2012, and AnnualReport_2012 match the object named AnnualReport_2012.pdf. A query expression with a text string such as Annual or 201 does not match this object.

Similarly, to query for objects with a path or custom metadata that contains the word product, you need to use the complete word product as the text string. A query expression with a text string such as prod does not match objects with a path or custom metadata containing product.

Common words such as a and is are indexed and are valid search terms. For example, a query containing the text string A3534 matches all objects with paths and custom metadata that contain the word a.

Search terms are not case sensitive. Therefore, the strings AnnualReport, Annualreport, and annualreport are equivalent.

Common words such as a and is are valid search terms. For example, a query containing the text string A3534 matches all objects with paths and custom metadata that contain the word a. To prevent such a match, use a phrase as described below.

To specify a negative number as a criterion, enclose the value in double quotation marks, for example, "-3121".

To specify a phrase as a criterion, put the text string in double quotation marks. A phrase matches paths and custom metadata that contain each of the alphabetic or numeric search terms within the quotation marks in the specified order, but any special characters or white space between the individual strings is ignored. For example, the phrase "product 123" matches custom metadata that contains any of these strings:

product 123
product123
product_123
