Is it possible to do an exact phrase match search on incidents?


Incidents, Search


Exact phrase searching is not available when searching incident records. However, you can improve incident searching by using complex expressions. When searching with complex expressions, by default, the terms are associated using an "OR" connection. This in essence makes the search terms optional. In order to make a specific term required there needs to be a "+" added before the term. For example, if your search requires both "product" and "category", the complex expression for searching would be written "+product +category".
