Cloudinary DAM : Basic Searching Guidelines for Global Search
🔎 Searching is not case-sensitive:
..will each return the same results.
🔎 Boolean operands must be specified in all UPPER-CASE:
beach AND sand
beach OR sand
beach NOT sand
🔎 Boolean searching is implied OR:
beach OR sand
..will each return the same results and is designed to allow for quick & easy inclusion of multiple query values such as Product IDs. For scenarios where assets must include all matching values, remember to use Boolean AND.
🔎 Boolean queries for assets that must include all values requires AND:
beach AND sunshine
palm AND tree AND coconut
🔎 Trailing wIldcards are supported and can be used in conjunction with Booleans:
beach* AND sand*
..may possibly be useful when searching for metadata values that may have been pluralized and/or lengthier values (although in most cases trailing wildcards are implied and not necessary).
🔎 Phrasal searching is supported and can be used in conjunction with both trailing wildcards and Booleans:
“sandy beach” AND sunshine
“sandy beach” AND fish*
🔎 A single grouped term (sub-query) is supported as the first term:
(beach OR sand) AND desert
(beach OR sand OR cliff) AND desert
..may be useful to provide more control of the Boolean logic for a query.
