Full (postfix prefix) wild card for searching properties

A standard (postfix) wildcard can be used on any search term entered in the Ontolica search center. To use it, you need to append directly after a given keyword, e.g. manage

If a standard wildcard is not sufficient to find required information, you can use a full (prefix+postfix) wildcard. You can do that only when searching for properties in SharePoint. The syntax is as follows:

‘Job Title’~%manag%

This will return values like Manager, Executive Management, Project Manager and others that have the substring “manage” in the Job Title property.

Please note that using the full wildcard may cause some performance strains on systems with a large number of properties.
