Basic Search Retrieval Type

Basic Siebel Search supports basic Boolean settings. For more information on Basic Search settings see Search Execution Settings.

Boolean Operators

A basic search license allows you to perform searches using the strict Boolean retrieval model. The strict Boolean retrieval model offers very precise control over what is retrieved during a search. This model will exclude desired text that does not conform exactly to the search criteria.

When searching for matching rows in a table or document, this model uses strict Boolean operations for combining search terms. There is no question of degree to which a match is found—all matches must be exact.

For example: performing a search for Computers AND Monitors would make sure that only documents or database records containing both words would be retrieved.

For a list of Boolean operators see Search Operators and Connectives.
