About wildcards

  • Currently supported wildcards: * and ?

  • Escape character: \

  • Avoid starting a wildcard query term with * or ? , as it may result in an extremely slow-running query.
    Search and rules use literal values and regex patterns to look for matching values assigned to the corresponding JSON path fields.

About complex searches

Besides full text search, you can use Boolean operators and wildcards.
You can combine these filtering options to create more refined searches.

Use Boolean operators to combine multiple quick filters, and to create a more complex search query.
