FieldText Search

FieldText queries are Query, Suggest, or SuggestOnText actions that include the FieldText parameter. You can combine this parameter with the Text parameter to restrict the results that your query returns to documents that contain a specific value in a specified field. You can also use the FieldText parameter on its own to query for documents that contain specific values in specific fields. HPE does not recommend this type of query because it slows the IDOL Content component processing speed.

To specify how documents must match fields and field values to return as results, the FieldText parameter uses field specifiers which identify the pattern of values in fields. These field specifiers fall into three groups, described in these sections:


FieldText queries that include commas and braces within the query have specific percent-encoding requirements. For information about percent-encoding, see FieldText.
