Question:

How to use search box in DocOps?

 

Answer:

You can find our product manuals in DocOps (https://docops.ca.com). Here are some search functions to help you find what you need using the search box. 

 

- Matched phrase search
Use double quotes to search for content that contains the phrase 'application parameter'.

"application parameter"

Note: Search box will ignore common words (stop words), including 'and', 'or', 'a', 'an', 'the', 'on', 'at', and more, even if they are included within double quotes.
For example:

- Searching for "application parameter" returns only pages in which 'parameter' appears as the first word after 'application'.
- Searching for "the application" returns all pages containing 'application' because 'the' is a stop word. 

- OR search
To search for content that contains one of the terms, 'application' or 'parameter', use the operator OR in capital letters.

application OR parameter 

- AND search
To search for content that contains both the terms, 'application' and 'parameter', use the operator AND in capital letters.

application AND parameter

- NOT search
To search for content that contains 'application' but not 'parameter', use the operator NOT in capital letters or hyphen.

application NOT parameter
application -parameter

- Wildcard search
You can use one or more wildcard characters in your search. You can also combine wildcard characters in one search.
Note: Search box doesn't support leading wildcards. This means searching for *pplication will not return application.

- Single character
To replace a single character in your search, use a question mark (?) as a wildcard.
For example, to search for 'get', 'got' or 'git',

g?t

- Multiple characters
To replace multiple characters in your search, use an asterisk (*) as a wildcard.
For example, to search for 'admin', 'administrator' or 'administration',

admin*

- Proximity search
Use a tilde character (~) followed by a number, to find two words within a certain number of words of each other.
For example, the following search will return 'CA Release Automation', but not 'CA LISA Release Automation'.

 "CA Automation"~1

- Fuzzy search
Use a tilde (~) character to find words spelled similarly.
For example, you want to search for 'artifact' but you don't know the correct spelling. You type the word followed by a tilde, you can find 'artifact'.
