You can also find technical manuals and release notes in the Knowledge Base as well as on the Genesys Technical Documentation site.

Search Results

Wildcards

* Asterisks

You can use a wildcard * Asterisk to expand the search term. For example:

orang* would find articles that contain “orange” and “oranges.”


? Question

You can use a wildcard ? Question Mark to replace a character in the search word. For example:

gr?y would find articles that contain “grey” and “gray.”


Operators

Knowledge Search supports the use of operators: AND, OR, NOT and NEAR. The NEAR operator allows you to search for two terms that are close to one another in the document.

For example:

apples AND oranges - would find articles with both apples and oranges in the text.

apples OR oranges - would find articles with either apples or oranges in the text, but not both.

apples NOT oranges - would find articles with only apples, no mention of oranges.

apples NEAR oranges - would find articles with apples and oranges in the text, where oranges appeared within 10 terms from apples.

apples NEAR:20 oranges - would find articles with apples and oranges in the text, where oranges appeared within 20 terms from apples.


Exact Phrase Searches

Knowledge Search supports the use of quotation marks “ ” to enforce exact search terms. For example:

“apples and oranges” would find articles that have "apples and oranges" in the text, but would not find articles with "oranges and apples", or the individual words "apples" or "oranges" that are separated by other text.
