Use Boost Rules in Queries

QMS does not apply boost rules by default. You must enable them in individual queries to QMS.

To use boost rules in your query

For example:


This query searches for boost rules that match the word phone, and that contain the FieldText expression MATCH{UK}:place. QMS then adds the additional FieldText from the rule to the query to IDOL Server.


This query also searches for synonymous terms.

If your boost rules contain a DATABASERESTRICTION field, set the SynonymDatabaseMatch parameter to True to apply the restriction. By default, QMS does not apply the database restriction.

Refer to the QMS Reference for more information.
