Soundex Keyword Search

If the spelling of a keyword is not quite accurate but is phonetically correct, a Soundex keyword query returns results that contain the keyword and phonetically similar keywords (using a Soundex algorithm).

You can enable Soundex keyword searches by using the Soundex parameter in the HPE Content Component configuration file.


You must enable Soundex keyword searches before you index the data to search.
