Central Search


I have a query on working of central search functionality. Does the central search search across all attributes identified as central search or just the individual attributes.

For example if I have following attributes identified for central search:

1. Product Description

2. Color

3. Product Title

If I search for test* using central search will system search across all the above attributes or just a single attribute. I am actually confused with the functionality here.

Also can anyone provide me details on the config steps for central search configuration? Thanks.

    Hi Yogesh,

    There are 2 type of searches under Enterprise search:

    1. Text based search(TREX search)

    2. Central search

    If you meant the text based search, it will search on all the fields identified as search attributes.

    If it is the second one, it will work like normal advanced search.

    From the context, i think you are talking the first one.

    I hope this helps.

      I hope you are talking about the search which is available under the Saved Searches.

      Under that if you go to each item eg. Accounts, there is an option of Free Text. If you

      have selected that for search, it will search on all the fields that are identified as

      searchable attributes.

      But if you are talking about each search field available under Accounts, that will

      search only on that field. That works like normal advanced search in the search

      page of the corresponding item.
