Fuzzy Search with OData Service via XS Engine


I have an OData Table accessible via a URL. I would like to have a fault tolerance if someone mistypes something.

Is the Fuzzy Search / Fulltext Search doable with OData table on MDC approach in HCP?

Thank you in advance,

    Yes, I have implemented Fuzzy-Search-xsOData before. I used CDS-Files to create the table and added the Fuzzy-Search Functionality like this:

    namespace users.i320500.oDataFuzzySearch;
    @Schema: 'I320500'
    context searchDemoModel {
      @Search.searchable: true  
      define view V_COMPANIES as select from COMPANIES as COMPANY {  
      @EnterpriseSearch.key : true  
      @Search.defaultSearchElement: true  
      @Search.ranking: #HIGH  
      @Search.fuzzinessThreshold : 0.8  

    Create an xsodata-file. (does not need to contain anything special, just as desired)

    You can use this url to search using Fuzzy:
