Searching only keywords

Hi all,

I have a request from an end user that we set up the search of one of our web repositories so that it will only the embedded-keywords for the documents and nothing else.

In other words, if we search for the term 'account', the hits that are returned in the search results are those documents that have the word 'account' in the embedded-keywords. If a document has the term 'account' in it's content and/or title but does not have it in the embedded-keywords, it should not show up in the search results.

It seems to me like I need a custom search component set with 'search_predefined_props' added to the 'Component for Basic Search Function'. I have done this, but my search still returns content with my search term in the contents of the file.

I have also disabled the 'Enable Standard Properties' setting in my search option set.

Can anyone help me out here?

    Hi Stephen

    Was it the cm_embedded_keywords-property you referenced in your custom Search Options Set as a predefined property?

    Kind regards,

      Hi Stephen

      Sounds good that I answered your question - unfortunately without solving your problem.

      You can try with a mix of the available search components to see if you can match the end user needs. In my experience it is normally hard to exactly meet the demands from the customer/end user with the available search components.

      The answer is to develop a search component which can be a difficult task (no matter what SAP says). But with an experienced java developer and if you decompile the components with relation to predefined properties for inspiration, I think you'll do fine.

      Best regards,

    Hi Stephen,

    Probably you will be using a search iView and hence you can mention a search option and search component.

    In that case, i would like you to do this configs and run a test.

    I dont have a web repository manager setup to do the test.

    I have created a search option and in there, i have mentioned Predefined Property(csv) = cm_embedded_keywords and Fixed number of predef properties = 1.

    And in the search component set, only in the component for

    Basic search function=




    Then these two names are mentioned in the Search iView.

    Will you let me know how this go? A bit curious...
