Endeca uses only alphanumeric characters to be searchable by default as part of Endeca search query.


Behavior:

If any search term contains any special characters, Endeca replaces special characters by "space" and make Endeca query. This may not give intended results.

Example: If a search term is T-Shirts, Endeca internally replaces with space so searchable terms would be "T Shirt". Search using internally updated search term by Endeca would not give desired results.

Solution :

For Forge-based Application

1. Open  <<Endeca_App_Path>>/config/pipeline/<<app_name>>.search_chars.xml.
2.  Add all characters that you want to make searchable.
3.  Run baseline.


For CAS based Application

1. Open  <<Endeca_App_Path>>/config/mdex/<<app_name>>.search_chars.xml.
2.  Add all characters that you want to make searchable.
3.  Run baseline.
