NOT, minus (-), or exclamation point (!)
Excludes documents that contain the term after NOT (a difference of sets).
Wildcards
Asterisk (*)
The asterisk symbol performs a multi character wildcard search.
Percent sign (%)
The percent sign performs a single character wildcard search.
Phrases
Quotation marks (")
Use quotation marks to search for an exact phrase with multiple terms.
For examples and more information look at our Knowledge Base: Advanced Search On The Support Portal

Advanced search on the Support Portal: Phrase Searches, Wildcards and Boolean Operators

 

This article describes techniques to further specify search terms on our Support Portal and therefore get more specific results.


Phrase Searches

Use quotation marks to search for an exact phrase with multiple terms.
For example: "Test Case".

 

Wildcards

You can use wildcards to refine your search. The following wildcards are available:

  • Asterisk (*): The asterisk symbol performs a multi character wildcard search. 
    For example, to find TestCases or TestSteps, search for:
    Test*s
  • Percent sign (%):  The percent sign performs a single character wildcard search.
    For example, to find Text or Test, search for:
    Te%t

 

Boolean Operators

  • Please note: Boolean operators are case-sensitive. For example, OR is an operator while or is a search term!
  • OR or vertical bar symbol (|): Finds a match if either the terms exist in a document (a union using sets).
    For example, to find documents that contain either "Test Data" or just "Test", search for:
    "Test Data" OR Test
    or
    "Test Data" | Test
  •  AND: Finds a match if both terms exist in a document (an intersection of sets).
    For example, to find documents that contain "Test Case" and "Tosca Commander", search for:
    "Test Case" AND "Tosca Commander"
  • NOT, minus (-), or exclamation point (!): Excludes documents that contain the term after NOT (a difference of sets).
    For example, to find documents that contain "Test Case" but not "Module", search for:
    "Test Case" NOT Module
    or
    "Test Case" -Module

    The NOT operator cannot be used with just one term. For example, the following search query returns no results:

    NOT "Test Case"
    NOT must be a stand-alone word. For example this query excludes the term Case:
    Test NOT Case 
    while this query searches for the term TestNOTCase:
    TestNOTCase
    Minus and exclamation point must immediately precede the excluded term. For example this query excludes Case:
    Test !Case
    while this query includes Case:
    Test ! Case

Would be good to know if there are other operators such as proximity - NEAR, ONEAR, synonym operators, and whether / how it's possible to use parentheses in my search query

The usage of parentheses and the operators you mentioned is unfortunately not possible right now.

Your feedback is much appreciated and we will consider it in one of our next updates.

As soon as the new functionality is available, this article will be updated accordingly.

Hi all, May I know if there a way to search where the buffer is used? Seems simple search the Buffer name cannot give me the result.

Would it be possible to combine this search with E-Mail Subject search? For example, I would like to delete all E-Mails that contain the subject "Test" or "Experiment". I thought Subject=*Test* | *Experiment* would do it but that does not seem to work..
