Search query and key search rules
These rules are used to set '*' and '~':
<QRY>* - Automatically appends a wild card to each word in the specified query. For example, the query 'joh smit' is set to
'joh* smit*' before the search is performed.
<QRY>~' - Automatically appends a tilde, or fuzzy search, to each word in the specified query. For example, the query 'joh
smit' is set to 'joh~ smit~' before the search is performed. Fuzzy searches should not be used with numeric values due to
the nature of this type of search.
Query inside "" - When specifying a query enclosed by double quotation marks "", wildcards are not added to the search as
the search engine treats all characters contained within "" as normal characters. That is, "joh*" only returns results for
'joh*' including the '*' character, and not 'john' etc.
Short words - (With effect from M3 IES version 11 patch 5 onwards). Short words containing fewer than the number of characters
set in the IES local administration page are not appended with '*' or '~'. For example, if the setting is three characters,
which is the default, then 'jo', '10' and 'xl' would not appended with '*' or '~'. This is to improve system performance.
