Client Guide : Using Xinet Portal : Search with Quick Search

Search with Quick Search
The Quick Search field allows you to specify a global search query to locate assets found in all volumes displayed in the Navigator.
To create a global quick search:
Type a search string in the Quick Search field, and click Submit.
Use quotes ( “ “ ) to include character spaces in your search string. For examples, see below. Solr Search offers many additional search string options, also listed below.
Portal Marquee theme users have the option to filter their quick searching by selecting either File names only or Everywhere. Assets found are displayed in the Portal view and the Filters tab displays associated metadata and the number found.
To limit search results to a folder:
Search for a term as described above.
Use the Navigator Panel located under the search field to select a folder. The search results shown will be from the selected folder only (and its subfolders)
Search Query Examples
The following are examples of some search strings and corresponding search results:
Search Query
Note: If your results are not recognizing case sensitive words, your user configuration settings require updating by your Administrator.
Quick Search Query Options (Solr Only)
The following additional Quick Search query options are available for Solr. Found matches are sorted by relevance. The best match is listed at the top of the list.
Limit the Search to File or Directory Names
To limit your Quick search to file or directory names:
For Portal users using the Marquee theme, to find results from the Top Level, select Everywhere.
Search for Strings and Numbers
For example, IDC15.
Note: By default, Xinet supports Solr stemming for filenames, strings, keyword metadata, and text content. Stemming is used to find index entries in the database containing the root form of a word. For example, if you type the word Stem, the Solr stemming algorithm may locate index entries such as Stemming, Stemmed, and Stem.
Search for an Exact Word or Phrase
By default:
Search for Assets using Wildcard Matching
For example, Foo*Bar locates all assets using Foo + whatever + Bar.
Search for Assets using Boolean Operators
Use the OR, AND, or NOT operators to search for assets.
Tip: When typing a search term without using any operators, the OR operator is used by default.
For example, in my asset database I have the assets My House.jpg, John Smith.jpg, and Joanne Doe.jpg. Searching for the following, house OR Joanne, returns both MY House.jpg and Joanne Doe.jpg.
For example, searching for Joanne AND Doe returns the asset using both terms, Joanne Doe.jpg.
For example, Tree NOT Plant returns all assets using the term Tree and not using the term Plant.
Grouping Boolean Operators
Use a combination OR, AND, or NOT of Boolean operators to control the logic of your query.
For example, to search for Foo OR Doe AND Tree, returns assets that use Tree and either term Foo or Doe.
Exclude a Word from Your Search Query
For example, Foo -Bar. This search query returns all assets using the term Foo except those using the term Bar in their filenames, file attributes, metadata, or text content.
Search for Assets that Must Contain a Word
For example, in my asset database I have three assets; My House.jpg, Joannes House.png, and Joanne Doe.jpg. Searching for the following, house +Joanne, returns JoannesHouse.png and Joanne Doe.jpg.
Sort the Specified Search Results by Specifying a Boost Factor
For example, in my asset database I have assets called Hickory Tree.jpg and Chicory Plant.jpg. Searching for Tree Plant ^2, displays Chicory Plant.jpg as the first asset listed in the display area followed by Hickory Tree.jpg since we have boosted the term Plant. Removing the boost factor value reverses the order displayed since Tree is the first search term in the query.
Search for a Word Within the Proximity of Another Word
For example, to search for the word Xinet and Interchange within 10 words of each other in a document, use the search “Xinet Interchange”-10.
Search for Similar Terms Used by Assets
For example, in my asset database, I have assets called Hickory Tree.jpg, Chicory Plant.jpg, and Joanne Doe.jpg. Searching for Hickory~ returns both Hickory Tree.jpg and Chicory Plant.jpg because both terms Hickory and Chicory are similar.
Search for Terms in Data Fields
In Quick Search, it is possible to perform Solr searches of particular data fields via search query parameters.
The data field can also be a built-in Solr field name such as: annotations, annotationscomment, annotationsstamp, annotationstext, archived, comments, createdate, creator, dir, fileid, filter, fullpath, fullpath_sort, modifydate, online, parentfileid, parentfolder, parentpathids, pathid, textcontent, type, utf8name, utf8name_sort, volid.
For example,
