Help with searching

Question asked by atariq on Feb 25, 2007

I recently installed the new release of Alfresco 2.0 and am giving it a test whirl and I have come to understand that the search engine supports Lucene. I must admit here that I have no prior knowledge in Lucene queries and I was hoping someone would be able to help me with an issue in searching that I'm currently trying to figure out.

I have a large number (> 1000) of docs uploaded onto an Alfresco space and so the search engine would definitely come handy. I'm trying to figure out how to type in a query such that only documents that contain ALL the words in the search are returned and not any documents that contain only one or a few of the words.

e.g.:

File 1 contains the word "boo"

File 2 contains the words "boo shoo foo goo"

I would like the search query, 'boo goo', to return ONLY File 2 as it is the only file that contains both the word 'boo' and 'goo'.

Currently, the search returns BOTH File 1 and File 2 because both files contain the word 'boo'.

How can I work around this? Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
