Wildcards in REST API
So i need to enable partial search, in Coveo terms will be Wildcards. So test it on the administrator of Coveo, if a put in the search that the coveo admin panel as, for example
reque* returns about 400 results witch is correct. Now if i use the rest api and i put this(for example)
This returns me about 24000 resutls.
http://coveoinstance/search?@systitle=reque* is not doing the
@systitle=reque* query because there is no
cq query string parameter. Also, a wildcard field search in CES is not done with the
= operator but with the
*= operator (see Coveo Query Syntax Reference).
In addition, if you want to do a wildcard query in the basic expression (
q query string parameter) on the REST API, you also need to include the
wildcards=true query string parameter.
The correct URL for your query would be
So if i want to search for "medicaid" and i put "caid" in the q parameter, when i put this as
q=*caid* with the wildcard=true does not return results.
BTW: When i use this
q*=*caid* return all results :S.
