About Search Queries

  • A search query consists of one or more search terms, along with zero or more parameters, such as Boolean operators, and wildcards.

  • An automatic AND is assumed between words entered next to each other in a search query. For example, a search for bird cat dog returns the same search results as bird AND cat AND dog.

  • Query terms are not case sensitive, and punctuation marks, such as hyphens, commas, and semicolons, are ignored.

  • Query length can be up to 2,000 characters but development work to accommodate much longer queries of up to 64,000 characters is underway and this feature is expected to be released on the CDL by the end of 2023.

  • The search results query text rendered immediately above Search Results shows you how searches have been parsed.
